Required Courses

The 4 core required courses for the M.A. Statistics Degree are:

GR5203 and GR5204 are required to be taken sequentially in the first semester.

(4) GR5291 Advanced Data Analysis (3 points):  Required “Capstone Course” to be taken in the last semester of the program. 

Core courses cannot be waived regardless of prior background.  For any course to count towards the MA Degree, it must be taken for a grade evaluation.  P/F is not acceptable. 

In addition to the four core courses are six electives (three must be from the Statistics Department) to complete the ten course/30 credit minimum to graduate.
