Degree: Master of Science (MS)
Field of Study: Statistics
A student must satisfy all of the general requirements of the School of Graduate Studies as well as the more specific requirements of the department to earn a master’s degree. Each graduate student is assigned an academic advisor upon matriculation. The academic advisor's primary responsibility is to help the student plan an appropriate and sufficiently broad program of coursework and study that will satisfy both the degree requirements and the special interests of the student. With the aid of the academic advisor, each student must present a study plan indicating how he or she intends to satisfy the requirements for a graduate degree. Master's students completing a thesis as part of their program will also form a thesis committee, chaired by their research advisor, to advise on and evaluate both the thesis and its oral defense.
For graduate policies and procedures, please review the School of Graduate Studies section of the General Bulletin.
