To complete the applied statistics graduate certificate program, students must complete 15 graduate-level credit hours of course work with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Choose from the following courses:
- STAT 701 - Fundamental Methods of Biostatistics (3 credit hours, offered Spring Term)OR
- STAT 703 - Introduction to Statistical Methods for the Sciences (3 credit hours, offered Fall, Spring and Summer terms)
- STAT 705 - Regression and Analysis of Variance (3 credit hours, offered Fall and Spring terms)
- STAT 720 – Design of Experiments (3 credit hours, offered Spring term)
- STAT 722 - Statistical Designs for Product Development and Process Improvement (3 credit hours, offered Fall, Spring and Summer terms)
- STAT 730 - Multivariate Statistical Methods (3 credit hours, offered Fall, Spring and Summer terms)
- STAT 870 - Analysis of Messy Data (3 credit hours, offered Fall, Spring and Summer terms)
All courses are offered via distance delivery. Additional on-campus courses may also be applied to the graduate certificate.
A maximum of three credit hours can be earned from coursework taken outside the Department of Statistics, either in another department on campus, or at another university. Persons wishing to apply such credits will gain approval from the director of the certificate program. Courses so approved must clearly be of an applied statistics nature, of a duration commensurate with the number of credit hours claimed on the certificate, and at a graduate level (under no circumstances will undergraduate courses be considered). For consideration of coursework taken outside the Department of Statistics to be included on the Graduate Certificate Completion form, a syllabus must be submitted, which indicates substantive content of applied statistics.
