Statistics Advising

Normally, most statistics courses are elected after an introductory mathematics sequence has been completed or after consulting a department department advisor. See Department website for contact information: www.lsa.umich.edu/stats/undergraduate/advising

Students wishing to pursue a minor in Statistics must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with a Statistics Department undergraduate department advisor. See Department website for contact information: www.lsa.umich.edu/stats/undergraduate/advising

Computing. Computing is central to current statistical practice, both in and beyond universities. Modern statistical techniques often lend themselves to being understood in terms of algorithms and computation. Accordingly, instructors of courses serving statistics minors are increasingly integrating computation and algorithms into  their instruction. We expect students to undertake the computing requirement prior to declaring a minor in the department.
