I’m trying to gauge whether or not I’ll be able to get into a statistics masters program with my current math background or if I should do a post-baccalaureate program first.

I graduated a few years ago with a degree in Analytics and minor in Computer Science. My degree didn’t include a lot of math courses so I took Calc 2, Calc 3 and Linear Algebra at a local university after graduation (while working full-time). Those classes seem to fulfill the prerequisites for a lot of the programs I’ve looked at, but I’m still not sure if it’s enough for me to actually get accepted anywhere.

I’ve read a lot of conflicting information about how easy or not it is to get into masters programs, so any advice would be really helpful. Thank you!

## Strong enough math background for Statistics masters?

### Re: Strong enough math background for Statistics masters?

It will. I moved from Philosophy to Math. So with no math background, if I can do it, you can definitely do it.

Yep. Wouldn't hurt to take a probability course, though.
