2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Statistics Major (Business Administration) – Fifth Year Master of Science – Collateral Option


Students may earn a Bachelor of Science (majoring in mathematics or statistics) and a Master of Science with a major in statistics in five years as follows. (See the Graduate Catalog for more information on the Master of Science degree.) Please note that admission as a graduate student must be obtained prior to the beginning of the fifth year.

  • To apply, a student must earn a grade of B or better in MATH 142  (MATH 148 ) and MATH 241  (MATH 247 ) and have a UT cumulative GPA of 3.25 or greater with 60 or more credit hours earned.
  • To continue, a student must complete at least 96 hours of undergraduate credit prior to the fourth year with a B average (3.0) or better.
  • Complete the requirements for your first undergraduate degree by the end of your fourth year, but not earlier.
  • Complete an additional 9 hours of statistics courses (Statistics 566, 572 and 573) graduate credit by submitting a “Senior Requesting Graduate Credit” form and obtaining approval through the Graduate School. These courses must be taken in the fourth year and may not be used to fulfill any requirements for the undergraduate degree. Note: Each semester you are registered for a graduate course, your total credits for undergraduate and graduate classes may not exceed 15.
  • In the fifth year, including the summer preceding or following the fifth year, complete requirements for the Master of Science degree as detailed in the Graduate Catalog. This will typically require 12 credits per semester.

The Department of Statistics, Operations and Management Science awards graduate assistantships each year. The assistantship pays graduate tuition, as well as a stipend for living expenses. Fourth year students who complete at least 6 credits of graduate course work toward the Master of Science degree with a B average or better will be given priority for a graduate teaching assistantship from the department beginning in the academic year following award of the Bachelor of Science degree.
