Prospective Graduate Students
Dear Prospective Students:
The Statistics Department at Case Western Reserve University offers opportunities for graduate study to students with interests in statistical theory, modeling and applications to interdisciplinary work. Our coursework beyond a core of statistical theory and modern data analysis with application is individually tailored to each graduate student's interests whether leading to a master's degree or preparatory to doctoral research. Graduates with either M.S. or Ph. D. degree are encouraged to have a substantive area of competence or an interdisciplinary focus for application of statistical modeling and methodology.
Interested students are welcome (though not required) to discuss their backgrounds and to outline possible programs of study with senior faculty before and after formal application. The Statistics Department is eager to admit strong students and can provide financial assistance to some. Financial aid may include waiver of tuition and/or stipend or assistantship with research or teaching duties for qualified applicants. Interested women and underrepresented minority students are especially welcome.
To apply for our graduate program, please email Sharon Dingess (email@example.com), who will then ask you to supply
Of these items, the personal statement is of particular importance because it provides the clearest basis for assessing the match of the student with the program.
A minimal mathematical preparation for graduate work in statistics should include a complete calculus sequence and linear algebra. A strong background includes additional undergraduate courses such as advanced calculus, real analysis, probability, differential equations, numerical analysis or courses in computer science.
Preparation in a substantive area, whether physical or biological science, social science, computational science, engineering, or management science, beyond the undergraduate introductory level is an advantage (though not required). Good written and oral communication skills are also an asset, and may be required for some assistantships.
We look forward to having you join our dynamic statistics programs.
