Mathematical Statistics

Specialization requirements

Knowledge corresponding to the courses

is required. Students should normally have this knowledge when starting the program. However, it is possible to include in the masters degree up to 30 higher education credits of bachelor level courses as needed. Further, in addition to the general requirements, the course

and one of the courses

is required.

Your study plan

Before you start the studies you should contact the program coordinator Hjalmar Rosengren to set up an individual study plan

Including the required courses above, courses covering at least 30 higher education credits must be selected from our department's advanced-level courses in mathematical statistics before the student can be registered for MSA910 Thesis in mathematical Statistics for the two-year Masters Program in Mathematical Sciences.
