Students are invited to consult with department faculty concerning career options. The department strongly recommends that students interested in data science pursue the Computer Science Minor.
All Majors in Statistical Science are required to complete the courses listed below with a required minimum grade of “C-” in each course and minimum overall GPA of 2.00 in these courses. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required.
Majors in Statistical Science are required to complete a minor unless they are a dual major or a major receiving a concurrent or second degree. Majors in Statistical Science are not allowed to minor in Mathematics. Students who wish to double major in Statistical Science and a major that requires a Mathematics Minor must consult a faculty advisor. A double major in Statistical Science and Mathematics is not allowed.
