When to apply to the Accelerated Degree Program: Junior year of undergraduate studies
The accelerated degree program (ADP) in applied statistics allows students to earn, in five years, a bachelor's degree with an undergraduate major in a variety of fields including, but not limited to: bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, business, chemistry, computational mathematics, computer science, data science, electrical engineering, mathematics, applied mathematical economics, mechanical engineering, physics and psychology and a master of science degree in applied statistics. Students complete 12 credit hours of approved graduate courses during their senior undergraduate year that counts as part of the undergraduate credit hour requirement.
Students may obtain both degrees in five years. Students with a GPA of 3.000 or better in their mathematics, science and engineering courses are eligible to apply in their junior year. Up to 12 graduate credits can count toward both degrees.
The Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences offers early admission into the master of science in applied statistics program. Marquette undergraduate students majoring in the above listed majors and others can apply for this program in the second term of their junior year.
