7 A one-year fast track! For example, for someone with a quantitative master or PhD degree, who also received already a solid initial training in statistics, it is possible to compose a tailor-made one-year programme, based on well-motivated exemptions for initial and foundational courses. Such a fast track can be followed in any one of the majors of the Master of Statistics. Evidently, the precise content of such a one-year programme is built on an individual basis and LStat faculty and staff shall be glad to provide additional information and assistance. Quantitative analysis for the social sciences (QASS) Quantitative Analysis for the Social Sciences is a dedicated track within the Social, Behavioral and Educational Statistics major. Whereas the full Master of Science in Statistics programme is a 2 year programme, the QASS track is a one year ( 60 ECTS) programme. COMPULSORY COURSES (26 ECTS): From Problem to Analysis Sampling Theory Survey Methodology Multilevel Analysis Loglinear Analysis, Latent Class and Logistic Regression ELECTIVES (12 ECTS) Uni- and Multidimensional Scaling Structural Equations Network Analysis Qualitative Comparative Analysis and Fuzzy Set Analysis Event History Analysis Mixed Models MASTER'S THESIS (22 ECTS) The global admission requirements for the QASS track are: Successful completion of an academic Master s degree with at least two courses in statistics. As courses are taught in English, proven proficiency in English is required for non-native English speakers. The admission committee ultimately decides on eligibility for this reduced-length track. The usual on-line application procedure should be used: Please add a motovation letter in which you state clearly that you would like to take the one year QASS track.
