Admission Requirements: Since a limited number of pre-service students (i.e., those without
professional or managerial work positions) are admitted, applicants to the M.P.A. program are
encouraged to submit all materials by May 15 in order to receive full consideration. Admission to
the doctoral program normally requires the completion of the M.P.A. or other relevant graduate
degree. Applicants are encouraged to submit all materials as soon as possible to assure
consideration for teaching assistantships, and although applications will be accepted through June
1, decisions regarding admission and assistantships will depend on availability of space and
resources. Admission decisions are made on April 1, May 15 and July 1.

Master's Degree Requirements: The MPA degree is a 40-semester-hour program consisting of
several overlapping tiers: (1) prerequisites to program admission including a course in economics


and an intermediate-level course in statistics; (2) a core curriculum of 17 hours; (3) a choice of
administrative specialties based on courses in public administration and other departments; and (4)
an internship or field experience requirement for pre-service students. It is an option B with a one-
person committee and no final oral examination.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: Entering students will complete the core courses in the M.P.A.
program (or equivalent courses from other institutions) along with a graduate-level statistics
course as prerequisites to the program. Fifty-four hours beyond the master's degree including the
dissertation and research seminars (including PA 761, PA 762, PA 763, PA 764) and courses in
methodology/statistics (including PA 765, PA 766) are required.

Student Financial Support: A limited number of fellowships and graduate assistantships are
offered by the department. Contact the department for more information. Other forms of student
aid are described in the financial aid section of the Graduate Bulletin. Students interested in
financial assistance should apply by April 1 .

Other Relevant Information: The MPA program regularly conducts an Assessment Center to
enhance students' skills in oral communication, technical writing and group dynamics. It is
required for pre-service students. Activities include technical writing evaluations, evaluations of
oral presentation skills and in-basket exercises to measure interpersonal, problem-solving and
managerial skills. These exercises enable students to gain valuable training beyond their academic

The department offers master's and doctoral programs in sociology designed to prepare students
for academic, research, and applied careers. The programs are structured to provide an
intellectually stimulating and academically rigorous, yet supportive, environment that emphasizes
developing research skills through course work and close collaboration with faculty.

Admissions Requirements: In addition to general Graduate School requirements, applicants are
required to provide a writing sample. For fall admission, the completed application should be
received no later than February 1 to ensure full consideration for assistantship support; final
deadline for fall admission is April 15. Applications for spring admission are considered under
special circumstances, but assistantship support is less likely; final deadline for spring admission
is November 1 .

Master's Degree Requirements: Applicants should have received/be receiving a bachelor's
degree from an accredited institution with a major in sociology. Other majors are considered, but
students may have to make up deficiencies without credit. The M.S. requires a thesis, whereas a
Master of Sociology (M.SOC.) requires six semester credit hours of practicum (supervised field
placement in an organization or agency) and a research paper. A minor for both degrees is



Doctoral Degree Requirements: The Ph.D. normally requires a master's in sociology, at least 14
courses (including or after the master's). Doctoral students take core courses in theory and
methods/analysis and select courses in two areas of specialization. Some course work from the
master's may be applied. A minor is optional.

Student Financial Support: Teaching and research assistantships are available on a competitive

Admission Requirements: The written statement should describe the applicant's academic and
career goals as well as special interests in the area of statistics. GRE General Test scores are
required. The well-prepared applicant to the department's master's programs has good grades in a
three-semester calculus sequence, a two-semester advanced calculus sequence, a semester of linear
algebra and a two-semester sequence in probability and statistics. Some of these courses may be
taken as part of the program, but this may result in lengthening the stay. Admission to the Ph.D.
program is granted to those who have been admitted to the master's program and have passed the
basic comprehensive (qualifying) examination at the Ph.D. level. Individuals applying for fall
enrollment and who wish to be considered for financial aid should have their completed
applications in by no later than March 1 for fall enrollment or October 15 for spring. Applications
arriving after that will be considered but may be assigned lower priority.

Master's Degree Requirements: All master's programs in statistics require a minimum of 34
credit hours, of which 12 are first-year core (ST 512R, ST 521, ST 522, ST 552 and their labs),
one is supervised consulting (ST 641), and at least nine are statistics and/or supporting electives.
The remaining 12 hours are program dependent.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: The Ph.D. program in statistics requires 22 course credit hours
beyond the master's, of which 12 are Ph.D. core (ST(MA) 778, 779, ST 793 and ST 794), one is
supervised consulting (ST 841), six are Ph.D. -level statistics electives, and three are supporting
electives. Requirements for co-majors are individually tailored.

Student Financial Support: Departmental assistantships and fellowships are awarded each year
on a competitive basis. Fellowships and supplements are provided through the department's
Gertrude M. Cox Fellowship Fund. Approximately 30 teaching assistantships and 30 research
assistantships and traineeships are available along with several graduate industrial traineeships
supported by local industries. In addition, the department offers NSF-VIGRE traineeships to
qualified U.S. students.

Other Relevant Information: With a large graduate faculty representing virtually all major
statistical specializations, the department is recognized as a world leader in graduate education and
research in statistics. Its applied orientation sets it apart from most other departments in the
country, offering education to those wishing to pursue careers as consulting statisticians in
industry and government, as well as to those seeking careers in research and teaching.


Areas of research specialization of the faculty and advanced graduate students include spatial
statistics, time series, econometrics, statistical genetics and ecology, experiment design and
analysis, sampling, environmental applications, statistical process and quality control, biostatistics,
bioinathematics, bioinformatics, statistical computing, nonparametric regression, robust and
nonparametric inference, mathematical programming, Bayesian inference, multivariate analysis,
decision theory and stochastic processes.

The department has excellent computation facilities consisting of two computing laboratories: the
Statistics Instructional Computing Laboratory (SICL), used for instruction and course labs, and the
Statistics Research Computing and Information System (SRCIS), a research facility maintained
for the use of statistics graduate students.
