The components of the first year program are:
The core sequences—the material which is covered on the prelims:
- Applied Statistics 34300, 34500, 34700
- Theoretical Statistics 30400, 30100, 30200
- Probability 31200, 31300
The third course in Fall can be chosen from (typically) Stat 30700, 33100, 35000, 39000 and Math 20700, with
the permission of the advisor. See the Department
Course Schedule for fall for a listing of current courses. You should discuss the choice of your third course
in the fall with your advisor.
Subject to permission from the department counselor, the probability
sequence can be replaced by 38100–38300–38500 or 39000–39100–31300.
Feel free to see your advisor or the Department Graduate Advisor Prof. Steve Lalley, whenever you have questions.
