Program Description:

The Master of Professional Studies (MPS) is a one-year degree in applied statistics for persons interested in professional careers in statistical analysis for business, industry or government. The program has three main components:
ò A two-semester core course, covering a wide range of statistical applications, computing, and consulting.
ò An in-depth statistical analysis project.
ò Required coursework, including a two-semester course sequence in mathematical probability and statistics; and elective coursework selected from offerings in both the Department of Statistical Science and other departments at Cornell.
The program can be completed in one year by a well-prepared student with the equivalent of an undergraduate degree in statistics or applied mathematics (e.g. calculus & linear algebra (Math 111/112, 231); core applied statistics (STBTRY 601/602); & math/statistics/computing electives. Students with less preparation can complete the degree requirements in one or two additional semesters by making up missing prerequisites.
