STAT 530 - Undergraduate Thesis
This undergraduate thesis allows students to examine and research a topic in the field of statistics. Students must have completed at least 90 credit hours and be a Mathematics major. This thesis may be taken in one or two semesters. STAT 530 is normally taken over two semesters and requires that a student find an Undergraduate Thesis research supervisor. Therefore, students are encouraged to apply to potential supervisors well in advance of completing 90 credit hours. This course is taken for a total of 6 credit hours.
