Applied Statistics Minor

Effective Winter 2018

Exclusions:

The academic minor in Applied Statistics is not open to students with a Statistics or Data Science major or any other minor in Statistics.

Advising

Most statistics courses are elected after taking an introductory course (STATS 250, STATS 280 or STATS 412) and completing an introductory mathematics sequence. Students wishing to pursue a minor in Statistics must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with a Statistics Department undergraduate department advisor. See Department website for contact information: lsa.umich.edu/stats/undergraduate-students/advising

Prerequisites

MATH 116 or 121.

Requirements

Minimum Credits: 15
  1. Core Courses: (STATS 250 or STATS 280) and STATS 306 and STATS 401.
  2. Elective Statistics Courses: At least two advanced electives. These may be STATS 403, 408, 449, 470, 480 or other approved courses. One elective may be a quantative methods courses with advanced statistical content offered by another department, with approval from a Statistics Department undergraduate advisor. 

 

 

Constraints

  • STATS 412 can be used to meet the core requirement (STATS 250 or STATS 280) but cannot be used as an elective.
  • The following courses may not be used as electives for the Applied Statistics minor: STATS 404, 489 and 499.

Residency

At least four of the five courses used to meet the minor requirements must be taken within the University of Michigan's Statistics Department.

Applied Statistics (Minor) (Winter 2015 - Fall 2017)

Effective Winter 2015

Exclusions:

Academic minors in Statistics are not open to students with a Statistics major or any other minor in Statistics.

Advising

Normally, most statistics courses are elected after an introductory mathematics sequence has been completed or after consulting a department advisor.  See Department website for contact information: lsa.umich.edu/stats/undergraduate-students/advising

Students wishing to pursue a minor in Statistics must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with a Statistics Department undergraduate department advisor. See Department website for contact information: lsa.umich.edu/stats/undergraduate-students/advising

Prerequisites

  1. MATH 115 or 121.
  2. One of: EECS 183 or 285, or SI 106, or ENGR 101

Computing. Computing is central to current statistical practice, both in and beyond universities. Modern statistical techniques often lend themselves to being understood in terms of algorithms and computation. Accordingly, instructors of courses serving statistics minors are increasingly integrating computation and algorithms into their instruction. We expect students to undertake the computing requirement prior to declaring a minor in the department.

Requirements

Minimum Credits: 15
  1. Core Courses: STATS 250 (or 350) or STATS 280; and STATS 401.
  2. Elective Statistics Courses: At least three of the following courses: STATS 403, 408, 449, 470, 480. Advanced Statistics courses may be included with prior approval of a Statistics Department undergraduate department advisor.

 

 

Constraints

The following courses may not be used as electives for the Applied Statistics minor: STATS 400, 404, 412, 489, 499

Applied Statistics Minor (Fall 2012-Fall 2014)

Effective Date: Fall 2012-Fall 2014

Academic minors in Statistics are not open to students with a Statistics  major or any other minor in Statistics.

 

The Applied Statistics minor program is designed to introduce students to applied statistical methodology. The minor will provide students with an appreciation for the tools that enable them to be involved in the design and analysis of quantitative studies as part of their professional careers or for pursuing graduate studies in applied fields.

Prerequisites to the Minor:

MATH 115.

Academic Minor Program:

At least 15 credits of courses, to be chosen from the following categories as stated:

  1. Core Course: STATS 250 (or 350) and 401.
  2. Elective Statistics Courses : At least three of the following courses: STATS 403, 408, 449, 470, 480. Advanced Statistics courses may be included with prior approval of a Statistics Department undergraduate department advisor.
    Exclusions: The following courses may not be used as electives for the Applied Statistics minor: STATS 400, 404, 412, 489, 499
