Concentrate in Statistics

We recommend choosing a secondary area of study if you select statistics as a concentration. If you're interested in marketing research, consider supplementing your statistics studies with a concentration in marketing. Other complimentary concentrations include finance and economics.

For course descriptions, prerequisites and course scheduling options, please see the Course Index.
