Our program in Statistics at the University of Georgia has provided students with a broad foundation in statistical theory and applications, and research opportunities in various fields. Such training has enabled our graduates to earn jobs in government, industry, and academia.


About this Degree

The Department of Statistics at the University of Georgia offers two tracks in the Master of Science Degree in Statistics. One track is designed in Applied Statistics and prepares students for professional careers in industry, business or government with terminal masters degrees. The other track is designed to accelerate a student’s progress through a masters degree in preparation for continued graduate work on a Ph.D. Degree in Statistics. Either track provides a route for a career in Applied Statistics. The M.S. Degree (in either track) has a thesis and a non-thesis option. 

The thesis option requires a minimum of 27 semester hours of graduate credit (exclusive of thesis), and the non-thesis option requires a minimum of 33 semester hours of graduate credit and a written comprehensive examination (which can also be used as a qualifying examination for the Ph.D. Degree). Both tracks require the practicum statistical consulting courses (STAT 8000). 

Students in the accelerated Ph.D. track would include more core courses in their masters degrees but are encouraged to add the applied statistics courses later to their doctoral programs of study. A basic core of five courses is required (usually in the first year) for all masters students, and hence, a choice of which track to pursue can be delayed until after completion of the first year of study. Prerequisites for admission to the program are: advanced calculus, linear algebra and statistical theory and methods at an undergraduate level. Additional prerequisites may be required for some options.
