A minor in statistics will assist students with their major field of study to better prepare them for a career in their chosen field. It will also prepare students to for graduate studies in statistics or in one of many areas where data analysis plays an important role. Interested students should contact the Statistics undergraduate advisor for admission into the minor. Students should have completed the calculus sequence through MATH 241 before entering the minor.
