Honors in Statistics

Majors with strong academic records and an interest in pursuing honors should contact the director of undergraduate studies no later than the start of senior year. Accepted students take 2 quarters of STAT 399-0 Independent Study, during which they develop and write a research paper; these enrollments do not count toward the major.

Students whose theses and grades meet department criteria are recommended to the college for graduation with honors. For more information consult the director of undergraduate studies and see Honors in the Major.
