Statistical Modeling Minor
The ability to make data-driven decisions is necessary in almost every discipline and a minor in Statistical Modeling will educate students with the basic skills and knowledge necessary to do so. We need to respond to the changing needs of the workforce if we want to adequately prepare our students for careers in a data-driven world.
The courses designated in the minor in Statistical Modeling will, most importantly, produce students with strong critical and creative thinking skills. In addition to statistical knowledge, students will become proficient in a software package to analyze data and learn the calculus and linear algebra necessary to understand some basic mathematical models.
This option is especially attractive to students majoring in Computer Science, Mathematics, or the Sciences whose majors already require them to take some of the courses included in the minor.
