The Department of History regards statistics as an important research tool that is useful for some graduate students. With the permission of the History DGS, students not in U.S. History may substitute statistics in lieu of one foreign language. To meet this requirement, a student must complete, with a grade of B or better, a two-course sequence designed to provide the basic statistics competence needed to undertake quantitative studies in history, and take one course which provides an initiation into the practical application of statistics.
