Content and structure of the minor

As more and more data are collected, stored and analyzed, knowledge of statistical methods has become increasingly important in many disciplines. Understanding statistics is useful for research in many areas including engineering, business, and education as well as in many jobs in industry and public administration. The minor in statistics is designed to provide students with an introduction to both -- statistical theory and practice. The students will learn to collect and describe data, to conduct statistical analyses and to interpret the results. Additionally, the students will learn to perform computer-based analyses and the theory behind the used methods.
