GRADUATE STUDENT HANDBOOK - M.S. in Applied Statistics
SECOND MASTER'S DEGREE
Wright State allows students who already have a master's degree in some area to earn a second master's degree with fewer than the usual number of credits. The catalog requirements for a second Master's degree are a minimum of 22 hours (vs 30), but the catalog also says that "Departments or programs may specify additional requirements depending on the length of the program, prerequisites for the individual student, and/or the nature of the first degree." The Statistics Program faculty have approved the following policy regarding a second M.S. degree in Applied Statistics.
Because of the specialized nature of statistics, students who already have a Master's degree in some other subject and who wish to pursue the M.S. in Applied Statistics as a second Master's degree ordinarily must complete the regular program of study in statistics. An exception to this rule may be granted by the Graduate Advisor if he/she determines that the student has completed statistics courses at the graduate level which are comparable to courses in the program. In this case, the required number of hours for the program may be reduced by up to 9 hours. A proposed program of study for such a student must be approved by the Graduate Advisor in advance of admission. All other requirements of the program (e.g. admission requirements, GPA, comprehensive exam, 700-level courses) must be satisfied.
