Master Thesis in Statistics

  • Number of credits 15 credits

About the course

During the course the student will individually perform a statistical work presented in a scientific paper. The work may consist of statistical data analysis, evaluation of statistical methods or review and summary of literature on some statistical area. The subject dealt with may be linked to ongoing research at the university, be a deepening of the work of a consulting nature or treat one's own area of interest.

The thesis should be an extension of a one year master thesis in statistics.

The thesis is presented and defended orally at an open seminar. The course also includes examination, evaluation and discussion of other students' theses.

The course consists of tutorials and seminars, where some of the seminars are mandatory. Supervision is provided only for the time when the course is in progress.

Note that the course is an on-campus course, which means that the student is expected to attend the seminars and meet with the supervisor at Umeå university campus. It is not possible to take the course online.
