Summary of Course Prerequisites

STAT 200

  1. For students with little or no math background.
  2. Not recommended for students planning to take STAT 220 or STAT 234 or more advanced courses in Statistics.
  3. Students with credit for STAT 220, STAT 234 or more advanced courses in Statistics not admitted.

Notes:

  1. This course meets one of the general education requirements in the mathematical sciences. Only one of STAT 200 and STAT 220, but not both, can count toward the general education requirement in the mathematical sciences.
  2. This course may not be used in the Statistics major or minor.

STAT 220

  1. Students only need credit for MATH 131 (or placement into MATH 151).
  2. Students with credit for STAT 234 not admitted.

Notes:

  1. This course meets one of the general education requirements in the mathematical sciences. Only one of STAT 200 and STAT 220, but not both, can count toward the general education requirement in the mathematical sciences.
  2. Students may count either STAT 220 or 234, but not both, toward the forty-two credits required for graduation.
  3. This course may not be used in the Statistics major.
  4. This course may be used in the Statistics minor if not used to fulfill a requirement for any major(s), other minors, or general education requirements.

STAT 234

  1. Students must have completed at least MATH 131, 151 or 162.
  2. Students should have a personal interest in exploring some of the mathematical underpinnings of statistical methods while learning essentially the same methods studied in STAT 220.

Notes:

  1. Students may count either STAT 220 or 234, but not both, toward the forty-two credits required for graduation.
  2. This course may not be used in the Statistics major.
  3. This course may be used in the Statistics minor if not used to fulfill a requirement for any major(s), other minors, or general education requirements.
