Accelerated BA- Mathematics Specialization in Statistics to Master of Arts in Mathematics-Statistics Specialization Program Plan  

Students enrolled in the Accelerated BA- Mathematics Specialization in Statistics to MA in Mathematics-Statistics Specialization should follow the following course schedule for planning out graduate work that begins while still enrolled as an undergraduate student, followed by the courses taken when fully enrolled as a graduate student in the MA-Mathematics-Statistics Specialization  program.  In order to complete this plan in an accelerated format, it is strongly recommended that students choose the Plan II option (non-thesis).  Students who choose the thesis option should expect the completion of their master’s degree program to take longer than an additional extra (5th) year. 

Undergraduate Accelerated Status (limited to 9 credits maximum)

Courses that may be taken while an undergraduate student with Undergraduate Accelerated Status that will overlap between the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees:

Choose three of: Math 5650 Introduction to Real Analysis I

                                 Math 5450 Applied Probability

                                 Math 5470 Exploratory Data Analysis
