Minor in Statistics


Statistics is the science of collecting and analyzing data for the purpose of making decisions in the presence of uncertainty.  Multidisciplinary application areas vary widely and include health and medicine, business, engineering, physical sciences, environmental studies, and government. The statistics minor provides training in theoretical, applied and computational statistics with a two-semester sequence in statistical methods (STAT 211/STAT 212) and a broad selection of upper-level elective classes. Depending on the electives selected, a student completing this program will be prepared to conduct statistical analysis in their professional work or to continue graduate study in fields involving statistical analysis.

Minor Declaration

We encourage students to be registered in or have completed STAT 211 before declaring the minor. Additionally, students interested in pursuing the Statistics minor should review the prerequisites for upper-level elective choices, as many require additional mathematics courses. Note: the prerequisite for STAT 211 is MATH 152 or MATH 172.

To declare a minor in Statistics, please email undergraduate@stat.tamu.edu and include your UIN.
