Undergraduate Minor Requirements
Statistics involve the analysis of numerical data. The ranges from the calculation of simple statistics to the mathematical theory behind very sophisticated statistical procedures. Professionals in areas such as agriculture, pharmacy, business, human development, and the social sciences use statistical tools.
Two different minors in statistics are offered. A Department of Statistics adviser for minors must approve the program.
Applied Statistics (Track 1):
This minor consists of 17 credits in statistics including STAT 330, 331, and four approved 400-level, three-credit STAT courses.
Statistics (Track 2):
Requirements for this minor are STAT 331 or 461, 367, 368, 462, and one other approved 400-level, three-credit STAT course.
A Department of Statistics adviser for minors must approve the program. The Chair, Dr. Rhonda Magel, will be the one who approves Statistics Minors. She can be reached at 701.231.7177 or Morrill 219A.
There are an additional six credit hours in Humanities and Social Sciences required by the College of Science and Mathematics. They also must be used to satisfy the minor requirement.
