Five upper division elective courses outside of statistics:

The electives are chosen with and must be approved by the major advisor. They should follow a coherent sequence in one single discipline where statistical methods and models are applied. At least three of them should cover the quantitative aspects of the discipline. Please confer with the major advisor for a list of recommended courses.
