The Master of Science degree program from Kansas State University offers two tracks: a Mathematical Statistics track, and a Data Science and Analytics track.


All master students in this Statistics degree from Kansas State University should have a background in mathematics at least at the level of calculus, along with prior knowledge of matrix or linear algebra.

Two master’s degree completion options are available for each track: the master’s report option and the non-report option.

  • For the master’s report option, the student must take 30 hours of coursework and write a report for 2 additional hours of credit in STAT 898 .
  • For the non report option, the student must take 36 hours of coursework and pass a comprehensive exam for the Mathematical Statistics track, or complete a Capstone Project for the Data Science and Analytics track.  
  • Students must select either the report option or the non-report option by the first week of the fall semester of their second year in the MS program. At this time, the student is required to file a program of study. Students that do not file a program of study that specifies an explicit choice of degree option in a timely manner will be automatically assigned to the non-report option. Students are not allowed to switch between report versus non-report options after filing the program of study unless the switch is approved by the Graduate Program Committee.
  • Students that are interested in pursuing the report option should contact potential faculty advisors by the end of their first year in the MS program in order to allow time to identify a suitable project.
  • For both the Report Option and the Non-Report option: Students must be enrolled in at least one hour the semester in which they plan to complete the final examination or defend their report and graduate. In addition, international students should check with International Student and Scholar Services to be certain of the enrollment required.

General requirements

  • All international students admitted to the Graduate School must demonstrate the same level of achievement as U.S. students. That is, they must hold a degree from an established institution comparable to a college or university in the United States, have an outstanding undergraduate record, have the demonstrated ability to do graduate work, and provide evidence of language proficiency sufficient for the pursuit of a graduate degree. 
  • Admission may be denied to students from technical schools, which may provide excellent training in special areas, but do not offer degrees equivalent to those of colleges and universities. As a rule, students from abroad are not admitted to nondegree status (that is, as special students). Questions about the qualifications of international students should be directed to the Graduate School.
