Statistics (Minor)

Menu

The Statistics minor is designed for students who wish to apply advanced statistical skills to a career in engineering, physics, business, or biological science. 

Students will learn statistical computation, theory, and analysis.​

Business students who have an exceptionally strong background in calculus, including calculus of trig functions, may be permitted by the chair to substitute MAT 135 and MAT 136 for MAT 150. ​

In general, mathematics students cannot earn a minor in the same academic program as their major.  A minor in Statistics, however, can be earned if the student's major is one of the following:

  • BS Actuarial Science
  • BS Mathematics & Computer Science
  • BA/BS Mathematics, with a concentration in:
    • Actuarial Science
    • Applied Computational Mathematics
    • Financial Mathematics
    • Individualized Concentration (with prior approval of the department chair)
    • Pure Mathematics
