Statistics is widely used in science, industry and government. Statistical methods are used to collect, analyze, and interpret data in natural and social sciences, business, and engineering. The courses in the Statistics Minor focus on applied topics that are useful for students in a variety of disciplines.
A grade of "C" or better is required for each course in this program to count toward the Statistics Minor. Calculus I (MTH 1410) and Calculus II (MTH 2410) are not listed in the requirements for the Statistics Minor, but these courses are prerequisites for courses in the minor. In particular, MTH 1410 is a prerequisite and MTH 2410 is a corequisite for MTH 3210. A Statistics Minor cannot be combined with a Mathematics Major.
