Original Written Work
All candidates must submit a written report on an independent effort toward producing original work related to data analytics. This report may, with the advisor’s consent, take the form of a thesis, a written review on a set of papers in statistics, or a written report on an independent study project, which may include an original application of statistics. For this work, a student must register for at least three semester hours of STAT 8090.
Presenting the Work
All candidates are required to present an open seminar on the results of the written report. The report should be made available for public review, through the Department of Statistics office, for at least one week before the examination.
The MA examination covers material presented in the written report and the seminar and may also cover course work.
