Important Note:
Our 29credit, threesemester program is novel in that it requires students to
have completed one introductory statistics course plus two calculus courses
(differential and integral) during undergraduate studies for entrance into our
program; multivariate calculus is not required to gain admission, although some
enrolling students have indeed covered the third calculus course.
Review of Calculus:
Before taking STAT404, it is important to review derivatives and integrals.
Students are suggest to obtain Schaum's Calculus Review
and work through lines, circles, equations and graphs, limits, continuity,
derivatives and rules, implicit differentiation, applications of derivatives,
trigonometry, rates, integrals, logs and exponentials, l Hopitals rule,
exponential growth/decay, applications of integration, techniques, improper
integrals, double integrals, infinite series and sequences.
Preparing for STAT408
(Regression) and STAT407 (Design): Students are
advised to familiarize themselves with basic matrix/linear algebra before the
start of the class; these topics are covered in most course textbooks and
online materials posted on the Web.
Sequencing of and Notes
about Courses:

Graduate classes are not
offered during the Summer semester  most students
seek out internships during the Summer months.

Fallonly courses are
STAT403 (Computing), STAT404 (Probability), STAT407 (Design), STAT408
(Regression), STAT411 (Survival), Predictive Analytics, and Statistical
Consulting.

Springonly courses are
STAT405 (Inference), STAT410 (Categorical), and Nonparametric Methods.

As often as possible: STAT406
(Stochastics), STAT421 (Simulation), STAT426 (Adv. Theory), Sampling Methods,
Longitudinal Data Analysis, Spatial Statistics Methods, Bayesian Methods,
Nonlinear Regression Methods, Hierarchical Modelling, and other special topics
classes.

Students wishing to take
course(s) outside of STAT need prior approval of the Graduate Program Director.
Here is the typical sequence
for students entering during the Fall semester:
First Fall Semester 
Spring Semester 
Second Fall Semester 
STAT403 
STAT405 
STAT407
