Statistics Minor

The minor in Statistics is open to all undergraduates. Although there is no rigid sequence which must be followed, students should plan their schedules carefully so that prerequisites are satisfied. Consult the Chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences, 274 Fitzelle, 607.436.3708, for further information on options and suggested sequences. Students planning to complete requirements for a curriculum minor must make all arrangements with the Mathematics Department Chairperson.
