Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Statistics

Major in Statistics / Major in Mathematics

Note: You are permitted to split credits for a class that counts for both the Statistics Major and Mathematics Minor (e.g. you could give 2 credits of Calc II to the Stat Major and 2 credits to the Math Major)
