Statistics MinorMathematics & Statistics
Swenson College of Science and Engineering
The minor in statistics is based on the completion of traditional mathematics courses including Calculus and Linear Algebra, a required introductory statistics course, one advanced course in a traditional statistics area, and two additional, advanced elective statistics courses. The minor in statistics certifies a student's quantitative, problemsolving, and critical thinking skills.
