Research MAS M. Students choose topics and carry out research individually under the supervision of a chosen advisor. Greater statistics is everything related to learning from data, from the first planning or collection, to the last presentation or report. Lesser statistics is the body of statistical methodology. This is a Greater Statistics course.
There are basically two kinds of "statistics" courses. The real kind shows you how to make sense out of data. These courses would include all the recent developments and all share a deep respect for data and truth. The imitation kind involves plugging numbers into statistics formulas. The emphasis is on doing the arithmetic correctly. These courses generally have no interest in data or truth, and the problems are generally arithmetic exercises.
If a certain assumption is needed to justify a procedure, they will simply tell you to "assume the It seems like you all are suffering from an overdose of the latter.
