Recommended Plan of Study


The following courses are normally taken by graduate students pursuing a degree in Statistics. Students are encouraged to find an advisor as early as possible. The final list of courses in a plan of study must be approved by the student's graduate study committee.

 

For MPS:

Year 1. Fall: 6110, 7000, 7600. Spring: 7010, 7610

Year 2. Fall: 7020, 7030, 7620. Spring: 7840, 7980

 

For MS:

Year 1. Fall: 6110, 7000, 7600. Spring: 7010, 7610

Year 2. Fall: 7020, 7030, 7620. Spring: 7840, 7990

 

For PhD:

Year 1. Fall: 7000 (or 7020), 7600, (math a1). Spring: 7010, 7610, (math a2).

Year 2. Fall: 7620, 7030, (math b1). Spring: 7800, 7840, (math b2)

 

Comments.

1. Students with some statistical background can skip STAT 7000 and take STAT 7020 directly in Fall of the first year.

2. A student usually takes 3 courses in a regular semester.

3. The courses for a PhD student after two years should be discussed with his/her advisor.

4. In the courses for PhD students, math a1/a2 and b1/b2 indicate two year-long courses for preliminary exams.
