Statistics is an excellent choice as a minor, or just to build your quantitative thinking skills. We encourage you to try a course in our department early in your college career. The department of mathematics, computer science, and statistics has a wide variety of courses available to first-year students.
STAT 113: Applied Statistics (QLR) is designed to introduce students to data analysis and statistical procedures in this increasingly data-driven world. The course is particularly appropriate if you are thinking of majoring in biology, psychology, environmental studies, or other fields in which data analysis is important, and/or minoring in statistics.
If you took the Advanced Placement Statistics Exam and scored a 4 or a 5, you will receive AP credit for STAT 113. You should consider enrolling in STAT 213: Applied Regression Analysis or one of the other upper-level courses offered by the department in statistics.
Courses this fall appropriate for first-year students, subject to the availability of seats, are:
- STAT 113: Applied Statistics (QLR)
- STAT 213: Applied Regression Statistics (QLR)
