Statistics Minor

For information, contact the Department of Statistics, 311 Upham Hall, 513-529-7828.

Statistical methods are increasingly in use in decision-making and data analysis in business and industry. Moreover, basic research in the biological, management, and social sciences, as well as in some areas of humanities, is also increasingly statistical in nature. As a result, demand for persons knowledgeable in the science of statistics is on the rise. The minor in Statistics provides a program in statistics suitable for students with very good mathematical abilities.

This minor is not available to students majoring in either statistics or mathematics and statistics. This minor is available to all other students including those majoring in mathematics.

To complete the minor in Statistics, you must earn at least 18 semester hours with at least a 2.00 GPA. A course taken on a credit/no credit basis does not apply toward the minor.
