Applied Statistics Minor

Understanding statistics and data analysis is becoming an increasingly valuable skill – both in the job market and in civic life. The minor in Applied Statistics consists of a series of courses in a cohesive minor for students interested in developing highly marketable skills in statistical analysis.

This program is highly multi-disciplinary and is intentionally designed to be open to students of a wide variety of majors including the physical sciences, social sciences, and business disciplines. Several courses in the minor fulfill University and Liberal Arts Core requirements allowing students to obtain the minor without requiring more time to complete their degree.

Minimum Grade Requirement: A minimum grade of C is required in any course in the Applied Statistics minor.

Residency Requirement: Students must complete at least 12 credits of the minor requirement at Marymount.
