A minor in statistics consists of at least 18 credits offered by the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics and the Department of Statistical Sciences and Operations Research. These credits include a minimum of three credits of calculus and nine upper-level credits in statistics courses. It is strongly recommended, though not required, that students with a minor in statistics take MATH 211 Mathematical Structures and STAT 212 Concepts of Statistics. The required credits may not be fulfilled with any of STAT 208, 210, 312 or any 100-level course.
A minimum GPA of 2.0 must be achieved in the minor.
Mathematical sciences majors cannot minor in statistics.

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.
While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.
Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at http://www.pubapps.vcu.edu/Bulletins/archives.aspx, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.
Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
