The Master’s program in Applied Statistics and Demography (MS) prepares students upon graduation for careers as applied statisticians in industry, government, consulting firms, and research organizations. Course requirements include at least 36 credits for a total at least 12 courses. Students are required to have basic knowledge in courses like probability and theoretical statistics. The program stresses on data analysis and statistical modeling. Most full-time students take two years (4 semesters) to complete the degree; however, it is possible to do it in 3 semesters.
