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 should have successfully completed Statistics 10 and Statistics 20 for a letter grade (this requirement is as of Fall 2014; prior to Fall 2014 one course from Statistics 10 through 14 for a letter grade was required instead), have an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better, and file a petition with the undergraduate adviser in 8117A Math Sciences, (310) 206-3742.

Required Lower Division Courses (9 units): Statistics 10 and Mathematics 31B.

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. Successful completion of the minor is indicated on the transcript and diploma.
