Double Major MS Admissions

Double-Major MS application guideline

If you are a current UC Davis graduate student and would like to add Statistics as a double-major master's degree, then you are highly encouraged to talk to the MS Admissions Chair first.  

Applications for the Statistics double-major master's degree are made internally, not through the online application system. If you wish to apply, please send the following documents to the Masters Program Coordinator, Jillian Hancock (

  • Transcripts (UCD transcripts as well as transcripts from prior institutes where you attended for undergraduate and/or graduate studies),
  • GRE scores,
  • Personal Statement
  • Three letters of recommendation.


  1. Unofficial transcripts and GRE scores are sufficient for the review purpose. 

  2.  Please ask the letter writers to send their recommendations directly to the program coordinator.

  3. The program coordinator will compile the application material into one file and send it to the MS admissions committee for review.

  4. For MS admission and course requirements, please see /grad/ms.html. The admission requirements stated there are the minimum requirements. It is expected that successful applicants have already had knowledge of and prior exposure to statistical methods as evidenced, for example, through completion of statistics courses with good grades.

  5. If admitted, the student should make an appointment with the MS adviser to discuss a study plan.

Applications will be reviewed in each quarter and must be received by the deadline to be considered for that quarter.
