The Master of Science in Statistics at Texas Tech University students seeking an advanced degree in mathematics or statistics should consult with the graduate advisor of the department before enrolling in any courses. The department offers a number of graduate courses that are suitable for students who wish to complete a minor in mathematics or statistics.  


A Master of Science in Statistics at Texas Tech University student must fill out a degree plan after the end of the first long semester and before the start of the second long semester in the program. Each student’s program of study and committee must be approved by a graduate program representative from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. It is expected that the student’s final oral defense of a thesis will be open to all who wish to attend, with scheduling to reflect this.

One of the following two options (to be selected with the approval of the director of graduate studies):

  • Three hours in an area other than statistics, e.g., mathematics, animal science, computer science, biology, economics, engineering, psychology, or sociology. This option requires approval of the graduate advisor from the selected area.
  • Three additional hours in statistics (to be selected from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics offerings).


The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, masters, doctoral, and professional degrees.
