Choose the Track in Mathematical Statistics

The mathematical statistics track provides a solid foundation in statistical theory and applications. It requires additional course work in mathematics and is good preparation for graduate study in statistics. 

Students who use STAT:4100/IGPI:4100 Mathematical Statistics I and STAT:4101/IGPI:4101 Mathematical Statistics II to satisfy the core requirements may not use those courses to satisfy the track requirement.

In addition to satisfying the common requirements for all statistics majors, students in the Track in Mathematical Statistics must complete the following course:

  • MATH:3770 (22M:055) Fundamental Properties of Spaces and Functions I (4 semester hours)

And nine semester hours from:

  • STAT:4100 Mathematical Statistics I (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:4101 Mathematical Statistics II (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:4520/IGPI:4522/PSQF:4520 Bayesian Statistics (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:4560 Statistics for Risk Modeling (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:5120 Mathematical Methods for Statistics (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:6220 Statistical Consulting (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:6300 Probability and Stochastic Processes I (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:6301 Probability and Stochastic Processes II (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:6530/ICPI:6530 Environmental and Spatial Statistics (3 semester hours)
  • STAT:6560 Applied Time Series Analysis (3 semester hours)

Note: If STAT:4100-4101 Mathematical Statistics I-II are used to satisfy the core requirements, they may not be used to satisfy the track requirement.
