The requirements for the MS degree are met by completing four required courses, and by selecting either the thesis option or the coursework option and completing those specific requirements. The four required courses of all students are:
|STA 612||Linear Models||3|
|STA 710||Stochastic Processes and Applications||3|
|STA 711||Advanced Statistical Inference||3|
|STA 712||Generalized Linear Models||3|
If a thesis is written, 30 semester hours of coursework, including STA 791, STA 792 and at least four additional 3-hour courses numbered above 700 (which includes STA 710, STA 711, and STA 712) are required for the MS degree.
If a thesis is not written, 36 semester hours of coursework, including at least four 3-hour courses numbered above 700 (which includes STA 710, STA 711, and STA 712), are required for the MS degree. STA 791 and STA 792 cannot be counted as part of this coursework.
With the approval of the Graduate Committee, graduate courses outside of STA may be taken in related areas to fulﬁll requirements; however, no more than 9 such hours may count towards the MS degree.
