Taking Intro Stats Courses?

The information presented below is also included in the online academic calendar.

Many students are required to include a course in statistics as part of their modular requirements.  Please exercise caution when enrolling in these courses as many are listed as “Introductory Statistics” and are anti-requisites to each other. 

Specific introductory statistics courses may be required in certain modules. Anti-requisite courses cannot necessarily be substituted for each other.

If you have any questions regarding other Introductory Statistics courses not listed here, please contact the Department of Statistical & Actuarial Sciences.
