Completing the MS Degree
Completing the Master of Science in Statistics Degree
All MS candidates are required to meet the TGS degree requirements and complete a Culminating Experience Project using statistics as part of their MS degree completion. The MS Program Director will communicate with student to determine the timeline and deliverables required for the project as part of the approval process.
Letter of Program Completion
The MS Program Director is responsible for reviewing the completed MS Culminating Experience Project and communicating degree approval to the Statistics Department DGS.
After your culminating project is received, Department Assistant, Kisa Kowal, will confirm the coursework you have completed for the MS degree.
Once all requirements have been satisfactorily met, the Department will issue you a letter of completion for your and our records. This letter is NOT an official degree document. Since your MS degree will be conferred in the same quarter as your PhD this letter serves as a record that you have met the department's requirements and can be presented if the record is needed at the time of degree conferral.
The MS is awarded simultaneously with the PhD.
When students pursue multiple degrees concurrently that are not part of an existing combined degree program, all degrees must be conferred in the same quarter. Furthermore, a student who departs (withdraws, is dismissed, or otherwise discontinued from) the program in which they were originally admitted becomes ineligible for the secondary degree.
Students may apply for completion of the MS degree in Statistics when all of their PhD degree requirements have been completed. The Master’s degree completion information can be found here. The PhD completion information is available here. At graduation time, please contact TGS Student Services to ensure that your Application for a Master’s Degree and Application for a PhD degree have been received and processed.
