Ph.D. Minor in Statistics
The minimum requirement for a Ph.D. minor is 20 units of course work at the 200 level or higher, taken at Stanford. The Department of Statistics devises individual Ph.D. minor programs, but the department recommends that graduate students in other fields who wish to have a subspecialty in statistics study for an M.S. degree instead. The unit requirement for an M.S. degree is 45 units, whereas the number of units required for a minor averages around 30. The student can make up this difference of 15 units by including in the M.S. program courses from his or her own field that are related to statistics or applications of statistics.
