# Statistics Minor

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.​

This Calculus sequence is offered only during the summer, in two 6-credit hour courses. Students successfully completing MAT 131, MAT 147, MAT 150 or MAT 160 should enroll in MAT 155; students who successfully complete MAT 148, MAT 151 or MAT 161 should enroll in MAT 156. Students who successfully complete MAT 155 may enroll in either MAT 151 or MAT 156.

Must be an internship course on a Statistics-related topic.

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. ​

Students whose major program is in the Department of Mathematical Sciences may earn a minor in Statistics only with departmental approval, under the general principle that at least two courses taken toward the minor in Statistics are not counted towards the major program as well. Students should contact their faculty advisor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences to request approval.
