The Statistics Major for Students in MMSS

For students completing the adjunct major in MMSS, STAT 202-0 Introduction to Statistics is waived, MATH 385-0 Probability and Statistics for MMSS counts in place of STAT 320-1 Statistical Theory & Methods 1, and the combination of MATH 386-1 and MATH 386-2 Econometrics for MMSS count in place of STAT 350-0 Regression Analysis. Therefore students who are completing an adjunct major in MMSS will need to complete the following requirements (6 units) for the joint major in statistics (for triple major limitations see MMSS Adjunct Major):

STAT 320-2Statistical Theory & Methods 2
STAT 320-3Statistical Theory & Methods 3

Three additional 300-level statistics courses.

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.
