Applied Statistics Minor
The interdisciplinary minor in applied statistics is designed to help students develop a broad understanding of methods for collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data. Students learn the fundamental principles of statistics, experiment with techniques for examining and drawing conclusions from data, and study concrete applications of statistics to a variety of fields.

An individual study involving a substantial statistical component may serve in place of one of these courses.
Advanced Placement credit may not be counted toward the minor. Mathematics majors may not minor in applied statistics, but are encouraged instead to select the statistics concentration within the major. Students considering graduate study in statistics or in quantitative areas of other fields are encouraged to take courses in mathematics beyond the requirements for the minor, particularly MAT 212, MAT 226, and MAT 301.
