UC Riverside’s (UCR) College of Natural and Agricultural Science (CNAS) now offers a combined B.S.+1 Statistics M.S. program. This opportunity is designed to allow successful B.S. graduates, who have taken some graduate-level statistics courses in their fourth standing year in UCR, to complete the Master of Science degree in statistics in only one year. CNAS has made this possible by allowing up to 12 units of graduate-level coursework taken at UCR as an undergraduate to be counted towards the M.S. degree requirements.
