The Department of Mathematics and Statistics will offer a new graduate certificate in applied
statistics starting Fall 2023.
The Graduate Certificate program in Applied Statistics is a four-course program that can be
completed in three to four semesters alongside a graduate degree program in another
discipline or as a stand-alone program by working professionals interested in expanding their
knowledge in analyzing and interpreting data. It will prepare students for the job market where
data analyses skills are preferred. It is aimed to:
- Provide knowledge of designing studies for data collection in a variety of situations.
- Educate students about assumptions behind different statistical methods and how to check them.
- Prepare students to identify appropriate statistical analyses techniques for given situations.
- Prepare students to perform basic statistical data analysis needed for their research.
Pre-requisite is a bachelor’s degree in any discipline. Students will be required to complete 12

two are to be chosen form the courses listed below. Twelve hours of course work must be
completed with no grade lower than “B”. A minimum 3.0 GPA is required to obtain the
certificate. Possible courses are:
|ST 540||Stat in Research I||3|
|ST 545||Stat in Research II||3|
|Select two of the following: see footnote table below 1||6|
|Appl Stat for Clinical Trials|
