The Department of Statistics offers graduate study leading to the Master of Science in Statistics, the Master of Science in Statistics with specialization in various areas of application, and the Doctor of Philosophy in Statistics.
Graduate College admission requirements apply. Students are expected to have a strong undergraduate mathematics background, but need not have an undergraduate statistics or mathematics degree. Students may be admitted with deficiencies, which are to be removed during the first year of graduate work. A minimum Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 590 for the paper-based test or 243 for the computer-based test is required for students whose native language is not English. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required. The department offers Ph.D. admissions for the fall only.
Graduate Teaching Experience
Although teaching is not a general Graduate College requirement, experience in teaching is considered an important part of the graduate experience in the Ph.D. program.
