# M.S. in Applied Statistics

## Degree Requirements

The Master of Science in Applied Statistics requires 30 credits: 21 credits in core courses and 9 credits of elective courses. Students must successfully complete at least 24 of these credits at the 600-level or higher, and no more than six credits at the 500-level will be counted towards the degree. A master's thesis or a master's project is optional.

*Seminar:* In addition to the minimum 30 degree credits required, all students who receive departmental or research-based awards must enroll every semester in MATH 791 Graduate Seminar.

Electives are chosen in consultation with a departmental graduate advisor and consist of advanced courses in mathematics and statistics and advanced courses from engineering, computer science, and biology that have a significant statistics content. Students are encouraged to choose courses in application areas. Courses offered by appropriate departments at NJIT, RBHS, and Rutgers University-Newark can be used as electives within the limits of the NJIT transfer policy. All elective courses must be approved by the graduate advisor.
