# 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.

## Course Requirements

A total of six courses are required based upon the below outline.

Course | Title | Quarter Hours |
---|---|---|

Calculus Sequence: Select one of the following sequences: | 12-18 | |

Sequence One: | ||

MAT 160 | CALCULUS FOR MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE MAJORS I | |

MAT 161 | CALCULUS FOR MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE MAJORS II | |

Sequence Two: | ||

MAT 150 | CALCULUS I | |

MAT 151 | CALCULUS II | |

Sequence Three: | ||

MAT 147 | CALCULUS WITH INTEGRATED PRECALCULUS I | |

MAT 148 | CALCULUS WITH INTEGRATED PRECALCULUS II | |

Sequence Four: | ||

MAT 170 | CALCULUS FOR LIFE SCIENCES I | |

MAT 171 | CALCULUS FOR LIFE SCIENCES II | |

Sequence Five: ^{1} | ||

MAT 155 | SUMMER CALCULUS I | |

MAT 156 | SUMMER CALCULUS II | |

MAT 341 | STATISTICAL METHODS USING SAS | 4 |

or MAT 348 | APPLIED STATISTICAL METHODS | |

MAT 349 | APPLIED PROBABILITY | 4 |

or MAT 351 | PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS I | |

Select two of the following: | 8 | |

MAT 326 | SAMPLE SURVEY METHODS | |

MAT 328 | DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS | |

MAT 350 | BAYESIAN STATISTICS | |

MAT 356 | APPLIED REGRESSION ANALYSIS | |

MAT 357 | NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS | |

MAT 358 | APPLIED TIME SERIES AND FORECASTING | |

MAT 360 | GENERALIZED LINEAR MODELS | |

MAT 399 | INDEPENDENT STUDY ^{2} |

^{1} | 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. |

^{2} | Must be an internship course. |

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
