Ph.D. Minor in Applied Statistics
The Department of Mathematical Sciences in the School of Science at IUPUI offers a master's degree program in mathematical sciences with a specialization in applied statistics. Accordingly, some doctoral students on the IUPUI campus may find it useful to have a minor in applied statistics as an additional option in their program of study.
Other Degree Offerings
The Department also offers a Ph.D. in mathematics focusing on mathematical statistics as well as a Ph.D. degree in biostatistics which is offered jointly with the Department of Biostatistics of the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health and the IU School of Medicine.
Twelve credit hours in courses approved for the minor in applied statistics, including STAT 51100, STAT 51200, and six additional credit hours chosen in consultation with the minor representative. For students in medical and molecular genetics, a common option would be to take two of the courses from 52300, 52400, 52500 and 53300. Statistical Quality Control (51300) might be a desirable elective for students in pharmacology and toxicology. Students who have successfully completed GRAD G651 Introduction to Biostatistics I and GRAD G652 Introduction to Biostatistics II in the School of Medicine will be exempted from STAT 51100.
The exact requirements for the minor and the examination procedure prior to admittance to candidacy are determined by the student's minor representative on his or her advisory committee from the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
