MSC Statistics Syllabus TU
Central Department of Statistics has decided to modify existing M. Sc. / M.A. semester course in Statistics after completion of one cycle of its running since 2012. From the practice it is realized that the semester system is relatively better than the annual system if it is implemented genuinely. It is also realized from the experience that the success of the semester system depends upon not only on the ways of evaluation but also on the methods of teaching and learning, active students participation in learning, evaluation and examination systems and overall designing of the syllabus.
When Central Department of Statistics started the semester system in M. Sc. / M.A. Statistics course,there were only few departments adopting the system. However, at present all of the central departments in university campuses have adopted the semester system and Tribhuvan University is trying to make uniformity regarding various factors within the system. Therefore, Central Department of Statistics has decided to make revision of the semester course of M. Sc. / M.A. in Statistics mainly to maintain uniformity among departments as regards the allocation of total credits for the program and evaluation scheme and also keeping in view of the international norms of the semester system. The course contents of the program has been re-designed, developed and revised by the participation of experts, former Heads of the Department and faculty members of the Department. It consists of core theoretical papers, optional papers, computer based statistical computing (practical) papers and dissertation.
