Minor in Statistics
The statistics minor has a minimum requirement of 34 credits. The minor in statistics consists of 8 required courses (28 units) and 2 elective courses (6 units). Our goal with the statistics minor is to offer a concentrated applied and theoretical curriculum. The statistics minor is suitable for chemistry, computer science & engineering, mathematics, and physics majors who already complete coursework in Calculus and/or Statistics with Applications. Upon completion of this program, students will
1. understand fundamental theoretical and applied principles of statistics needed for the job market.
2. acquire programming skills required for data analysis.
3. be able to communicate effective statistical concepts to statisticians and non-statisticians, both verbally and in writing.
4. be able to effectively conduct quantitative analyses which is compliant with industry and academic standards.
