Minor in Statistics

The Statistics minor equips you with a general introduction to statistical theory, followed by further training in theoretical or applied statistics through a broad selection of elective classes. Through this minor, you will become able to participate in statistical analysis in the business or engineering world, and you will greatly enhance your preparedness for graduate study in fields involving quantitative analysis. The Statistics minor is an excellent counterpart to any undergraduate concentration at the University of Michigan.
