Undergraduate Degrees in Statistics

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science Degrees
Statistics and Data Science Major

Dr. Gadbury

Students who major in statistics may seek a Bachelor of Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science degree by satisfying the general requirements of that degree and by completing the following:

  • MATH 220, MATH 221 and MATH 222
  • One of: MATH 515 or MATH 551
  • ENGL 516
  • One of: CIS 200 or CIS 209 or CIS 111
  • One of: STAT 325 or STAT 340 or STAT 350
  • One of: STAT 341 or STAT 351
  • STAT 510 and STAT 511
  • One of: STAT 705 or STAT 713
  • One of: STAT 710 or STAT 720 or STAT 722
  • STAT 725 and STAT 726
  • One additional STAT course at 700 level, excluding STAT 701 and STAT 703
  • Upper-division quantitative electives to give a total of 50 credit hours for the major. Courses must be at the 400 level or above, and may include IMSE 541, math, computer science, statistics, or course in other area with substantial quantitative content. Note that STAT courses at the 400 level or higher may replace either or both of the required 300 level STAT courses.
  • A minimum grade of C in each STAT course taken is required for graduation. 

 Additional information about undergraduate degrees in Statistics is available in K-State’s Undergraduate Catalog.

Dual majors and dual degrees

Dr. Dubnicka

Students may major in statistics and another discipline within the College of Arts and Sciences. The degree requirements of both departments must be met. For instance, it is possible to complete a dual statistics-mathematics degree in four years.

Students may obtain a dual degree in statistics and a field in another college such as business administration or engineering. The degree requirements of both colleges must be met and a minimum of 120 hours must be completed. Students who choose this option should complete the calculus sequence by the end of the sophomore year.
