The minor in Applied Statistics (APSM) consists of a minimum of 6 courses (20 credit hours). The four required core courses (14 credits) will establish the foundation for statistical learning and knowledge of discrete and continuous distributions. This will lead to the implementation of the two elective courses (6 credits from the list of elective courses) which will further strengthen the ability to apply statistical knowledge to various disciplines. This minor requires admission as an undergraduate student to the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. Students who enroll in this minor program will be required to take 6 hours of the elective courses at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee campus. The required GPA is at least a 2.0 average across all University level coursework.
