Statistics Minor

University Hall The statistics minor is intended to give students majoring in another discipline an introduction to statistical ideas and methods. Because first courses in probablity and statistics are taught in several departments, the minor allows some courses taken outside the Statistics Department.

Requirements

Five courses are required. At least three of these courses must be listed in the Statistics Department.

Courses that do not require calculus, such as PSY 20100 and SOC 38200, are not equivalent to the courses listed.

While there are several paths to the statistics minor, here are some sample plans of study which specific majors might find useful:

Management: STAT 22500 (probability), MGMT 30500 (statistics), STAT 51200, STAT 51300, and STAT 51400.

Industrial Engineering: IE 23000 (probability), IE 33000 (statistics), STAT 51200, STAT 51300, and STAT 51400.

Science: STAT 51100, STAT 22500, STAT 51200, STAT 51300, and STAT 51400.

Pharmacy/Nursing/Biology/Agriculture: STAT 50300, STAT 22500, STAT 51200, STAT 51300, and STAT 51400.

Mathematics: STAT 35000, STAT 41600, STAT 51200, STAT 41700, STAT 51400.
