The degrees of Master of Applied Statistics (see appropriate calendar entry), Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy are offered in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The Masters' degrees are offered by full-time and part-time studies.

23.19.1 Specific Requirements for the M.Sc. in Mathematics

Every candidate for the M.Sc. in Mathematics is required to complete one of two options.

  1. Option 1: At least 15 credit hours in graduate courses, at most 3 of which may be from seminar courses (excluding MATH 696A/B) and at least 9 of which must be in courses selected from the list below with at least 3 credit hours in three of the indicated subject areas. Remaining course selections to satisfy the total credit hour requirement for this option may be chosen from the departmental course offerings, excluding MATH 6299. A thesis is required as per General Regulations, Theses and Reports.

  2. Option 2: At least 23 credit hours in graduate courses, including MATH 696A/B, MATH 6299 and at least 9 credit hours in courses selected from the list below with at least 3 credit hours in three of the indicated subject areas. Remaining course selections to satisfy the total credit hour requirement for this option may be chosen from the departmental course offerings, excluding those in the range 6900-6950.

  • Algebra: 6320, 6321

  • Analysis: 6310, 6311, 6312

  • Applied Mathematics: 6100, 6201 or 6212, 6120

  • Combinatorics: 6340, 6341, 6342

  • Topology: 6300 or 6301, 6332

23.19.2 Specific Requirements for the M.Sc. in Statistics

Every candidate for the M.Sc. in Statistics is required to complete STAT 6510 and STAT 6560 plus at least 12 credit hours in graduate courses. Candidates must attend the Seminar Series in Statistics (non-credit) or register for an additional 3 credit hour graduate course. A thesis is required as per General Regulations, Theses and Reports.
