Advanced Statistical Methods

This course in multivariate statistics builds on the introductory and intermediate-level statistics courses that students are presumed to have taken. It is designed to provide students with an up-to-date approach to the most common statistical methods that can be used when more than two variables are considered simultaneously. The emphasis throughout will be on linear statistical models and related topics and it is expected that students will be able to apply these statistics in their own research and use their knowledge to critically review that of others. * Students without an intermediate-level statistics course beyond the introductory level will require the permission of the department before registering in this course.
