Statistics Minor

The Statistics minor is designed to provide a solid background in statistics for students majoring in other disciplines.

To enter the minor, students (1) must be in good academic standing (2.0 grade-point average or better) and have taken Mathematics 31B, Statistics 20, and one course from Statistics 10 through 13 for letter grades and (2) file a petition with the undergraduate adviser in 8117A Mathematical Sciences, 310-206-3742.

Required Upper-Division Courses (28 units): Seven upper-division courses selected from one of the following options: (1) any two sequences from Statistics 100A, 100B, 100C, and 101A, 101B, 101C, and 102A, 102B, 102C, and one elective course or (2) two courses from each of the above sequences and one elective course. Electives may be selected from any upper-division statistics course. Statistics 199 may be applied as one of the electives for both options. Courses 105 and 189 may not be applied toward the minor.

A minimum of 20 units applied toward the minor requirements must be in addition to units applied toward major requirements or another minor.

Each minor course must be taken for a letter grade, and students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better in the minor. Successful completion of the minor is indicated on the transcript and diploma.
