Pursuing a minor in statistics is a way for students who are not statistics majors to demonstrate expertise in statistics.
MINOR: STATISTICS (27 credits)
Students who plan to get a minor in statistics should declare their intention as early as possible. Students may consult statistics minor coordinator Dr. Yimin Zhang (email@example.com) 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.
- For mathematics majors, four courses may be counted towards both the mathematics major and the statistics minor: MAT 1500, 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.
- For those students who pursue both the mathematics minor and the statistics minor, exactly four courses (no more) may be counted towards both minors simultaneously: MAT 1500, MAT 1505, MAT 2500, and STAT 4310. No other courses count towards both. Thus, obtaining the statistics minor requires taking four additional courses beyond those require for the mathematics minor.
