# Graduate Certificate in Applied Statistics

This document supplements the **Montana State University Graduate Catalog**.

Training in statistical methods is a required part of the education of graduate students in engineering and the sciences. The Graduate Certificate in Applied Statistics is designed to provide additional education in statistical thinking and methodology over and above the basic coursework taken by the typical graduate student. This transcriptable certificate will provide a clear record of additional training in statistics for future graduate programs or employers. The Graduate Certificate will also be of interest to those currently employed in technical fields in the local area and to post-baccalaureate students.
