Accelerated Masters Program

The Department of Mathematics and the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program (GIDP) in Statistics & Data Science have created a Mathematics/Statistics & Data Science accelerated BA/MS and BS/MS program. Designed to focus and enhance statistical training and research across the UA campus, the program is for undergraduate students interested in obtaining a Master's Degree in Statistics & Data Science as well as a Bachelor's Degree in either Mathematics or Statistics & Data Science.

Program Details

Core Courses: Qualified Mathematics department undergraduates will complete the first 12 units of Statistics & Data Science MS core courses by the end of their senior year.

*NOTE* In order to reduce the unit load of a student's Senior year, STAT 564 and STAT 566 will replace MATH 464 and MATH 466, respectively, in the undergraduate major.

Minimum GPA


*While 3.3 is the minimum GPA officially required, a more realistic GPA is 3.7

Core Courses


STAT 564 - Theory of Probability & STAT 571A - Advanced Statistical Regression Analysis


STAT 566 - Theory of Statistics & STAT 571B - Design of Experiments
