Statistics Concentration

The Statistics Concentration is intended for students aiming at careers in business and industry. Students are required to obtain a solid mathematics background in addition to their statistical training.

In addition to the Core Curriculum, students in the Statistics Concentration must take

  • MATH 151 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry I*
  • MATH 152 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry II*
  • MATH 251 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry III*
  • MATH 252 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry IV*
  • MATH 260 -- Introductory Linear Algebra
  • MATH 300 -- Mathematical Foundations
  • MATH 430 -- Advanced Calculus I
  • MATH 431 -- Advanced Calculus II
  • STAT 301 -- Probability and Statistics I
  • STAT 302 -- Probability and Statistics II
  • STAT 420 -- Modern Regression Analysis
  • STAT 421 -- Design of Experiments
  • Three additional hours from 300- or 400- level Statistics courses
  • ENGL 306 -- Professional Writing
  • One of:
    • ITEC 109 -- Problem Solving and Programming
    • ITEC 120 -- Principles of Computer Science

Majors in the Statistics Concentration seeking a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree must choose six credit hours from

  • MATH 434 -- Numerical Analysis I
  • MATH 435 -- Numerical Analysis II
  • PHYS 221 -- Physics I
  • PHYS 222 -- Physics II
  • PSYC 301 -- Analysis of Psychological Data
  • PSYC 302 -- Research Methods in Psychology
  • MGNT 333 -- Statistical Decision Support
  • ECON 421 -- Econometrics
  • Any biology course or any chemistry course not used to satisfy the Core Curriculum

Majors in the Statistics Concentration seeking a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics degree must complete the B.A. language requirement.

Majors in the Statistics Concentration must have a 2.0 GPA in all required MATH, STAT, and ITEC courses.

*--A grade of at least C is required in each course in the Calculus sequence for all departmental majors.  Departmental majors receiving credit for MATH 252 cannot subsequently receive credit for any 100-level mathematics course unless the course is required for their concentration.
