Statistics and Data Science MS Program Proposal Forms
Students pursuing an M.A., M.F.A., M.P.P., or M.S. degree are required to submit an acceptable program proposal to their department during the first quarter of enrollment. Coterminal students must submit the proposal during the first graduate quarter (typically the quarter after admission to the master's program). The program proposal establishes a student's individual program of study to meet University and department degree requirements. Students who fail to submit an acceptable proposal may be dismissed.
