Ph.D. Minor in Statistics

The minimum requirement for a Ph.D. minor is 20 units of course work at the 200 level, 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. This difference of 15 units can be made up by the student by including in the M.S. program courses from his or her own field which are related to statistics or applications of statistics. Contact the student services officer for further information.
