Pursuing a minor in statistics is a way for students who are not statistics majors to demonstrate expertise in statistics.
MINOR: STATISTICS (27 credits)
To receive a statistics minor certificate, the student must see Dr. Yimin Zhang in person prior to course registration for their final semester. Students may consult Dr. Zhang at any time for information and advice. If all requirements for the minor are satisfied, then the certificate will be issued about two weeks after graduation. The minor will also appear on the student's transcript.
- A student who is not a mathematics major may petition to have an upper-division course from their major count as one of the two statistics electives. The course must have substantial statistical content and must not substantially overlap with any of the other courses that the student is counting towards the minor.
- To receive a statistics minor certificate, the student must see Dr. Yimin Zhang in person prior to course registration for their final semester.
- For mathematics majors, four courses may be counted towards both the mathematics major and the statistics minor: MAT1500, 1505, 2500 and either STAT 4310 or STAT 5700. No other courses count towards both. Thus, obtaining the statistics minor requires taking four additional courses beyond those required for the mathematics major.
