The mission of the Department of Statistical Sciences and Operations Research is to offer a strong undergraduate and graduate education, with an increasing focus on the development of cross-disciplinary efforts that will prepare students for real-world applications and stimulating employment and career opportunities.
The program offers maximum flexibility by allowing students, in consultation with their graduate committees, to design a course of study that will best develop competence in those areas most relevant to their scholarly and professional objectives. Students may obtain a designation on their transcripts indicating that their graduate study has emphasized the mathematics concentration by completing the requirements that are listed here. A student who has not satisfied the requirements for one of the program concentrations offered, but who has otherwise fulfilled all the requirements for a master’s degree, will be awarded a degree of Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences without any specialization.Student learning outcomes:
- Students will demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of basic statistical concepts, probability and interference, general linear modeling, calculus, and linear algebra.
- Students will know how to select appropriate samples and conduct appropriate experimental data collection methods.
- Students will be able to perform appropriate analysis of data, including knowledge of the assumptions associated with the procedures and how to determine the appropriate procedure to use.
- Students will be able to use statistical software packages to solve various problems.
- Students will know how to clearly and concisely present technical information in writing and through oral presentations.
