Creation of an Area of Specialization in Applied Statistics within the Applied Mathematics
 

Summary: Creation of an Area of Specialization in
Applied Statistics within the Applied Mathematics
and Scientific Computation (AMSC) Program
I. Overview of Proposal
This is a proposal to change the name of the Applied Mathematics and Scientific
Computation M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs and to create within them an Area of Special-
ization in Applied Statistics leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The proposed changes are
as follows:
A. The name of the approved M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in Applied Mathematics and
Scientific Computation will be changed to: Applied Mathematics and Statistics and Scientific
Computation.
B. Complete tracks in Applied Statistics leading to AMSC MS and PhD degrees are pro-
posed, which differ in their requirements from the degrees with Statistics specialization obtain-
able within the current AMSC program. The differences are:
(i) required core Statistics courses, which for both M.S. and Ph.D. must be courses from a
designated list or their equivalents;
(ii) the addition of a required 3-credit one-semester Practicum project for the PhD;
(iii) an altered comprehensive examination structure, for the PhD and the MS without thesis,
consisting of two written examinations plus a required independent two-week intensive
Data Analysis Project structured as a 1-credit course; and
