# Statistics Option

**This option is offered within the following major(s):**

The Statistics option offers Mathematics majors an opportunity to concentrate their senior level course work in the area of statistics and probability after completing core junior and lower-division mathematics requirements. This degree option is designed to allow a focus on the study of the mathematical theory underlying statistics while simultaneously developing expertise in statistical applications.

A grade of at least C– and a GPA of 2.25 are required in all mathematics courses used to fulfill degree requirements. No course used to fulfill requirements for the mathematics major or any of its options may be taken S/U.

The lower-division requirements for the Statistics option are the same as those for the Mathematics BS degree. The upper-division requirements are as follows.
