Requirements for the BA in mathematics with a concentration in statistics.
Mathematics and CS Courses
- Calculus I, II and III (MATH 1510, 1520 and 2530)
- Principles of Mathematics (MATH 2660)
- Linear Algebra (MATH 3120)
- Object-Oriented Programming (CSCI 1300)
- Foundations of Statistics (3850)
- Probability Theory (4800)
- Mathematical Statistics (4850)
Electives - Choose 2 from:
- Time Series (4840)
- Applied Regression (4870)
- Probability Models (4860)
- Machine Learning (CSCI 5750)
- Analysis (MATH 4210) (See note below.)
- Multivariable Analysis (MATH 4230) (See note below.)
- Other appropriate courses, as determined in consultation with advisor.
- MATH 4210 and 4230 are not statistics courses, but are very good preparation (and often required) for a student wishing to go to graduate school in statistics. If you are planning on graduate school, you will want to take more than the minimum requirements stated above.
- Students who will be seeking employment immediately after graduation would normally choose from electives 1-4.
- All students are encouraged to take more than the minimum required programming course. Good choices include: Data Structures (CSCI 2100), Object-Oriented Design (2300), and Databases (3710).
- Students are encouraged to minor in a related field or to do a double major. Related fields include business, engineering, and lab and social sciences, depending on student interest.
