in Statistical Science
The statistics minor is popular with students
who major in Mathematics, Business & Economics, Biology-related
majors, and many others disciplines. The growing number of statistics
minors reflects the pressing needs for a better quantitatively-trained
work force. Students preparing for graduate school are wise to take
advantage of the great variety of statistics courses offered on campus
and many of them complete the requirements for a minor in Statistical
College of Letters and Science Regulations
At least 18 upper-division quarter units are completed for the minor.
(Waivers cannot reduce the requirement below this number.)
* At least 12 of the upper-division units for the minor are completed
while in residence at UCSB.
The UC grade-point average in ALL applicable upper-division courses,
including those in excess of minimum requirements, is 2.0 or higher.
more than 5 upper division units overlap between this minor and the
upper-division portion of the major(s) or other minor(s). If overlap
is greater with the major(s), completion of the minor will not be formally
recognized; if overlap with other minor(s) is greater, only the first
minor reported will be recognized.
All courses to be applied to the minor must be completed on a letter-grade
basis. This includes both courses offered in probability and statistics
and those offered by other departments and applied to the minor.

undergraduate advisor of the department.
