Major Information
 Statistics majors are not required to satisfy the College of Science requirement of a minor in another discipline. However, Statistics majors often elect to complete a second (or more) major(s) and/or one (or more) minor(s).
 The statistics and mathematics elective courses may not duplicate those used for the major requirements. The number of elective courses required depends on whether a student is pursuing an outside minor or a 2nd major. The following are the three options:
 No Outside Major or Minor: A student may graduate with a major in Statistics, without a second major or a minor, by completing an additional 4 elective courses from the list of electives. At least 3 of the 4 electives must be chosen from among the STAdesignated courses. The major requires 50 credit hours.
 Outside Minors: A student graduating with a single major in Statistics, and at least one minor outside the department, must complete at least 2 additional elective mathematics courses. Effectively, the major requires 44 credit hours.
 Outside Double Majors: A student graduating with multiple majors, including Statistics, need not take any additional elective math courses. Effectively, the major requires 38 credit hours. A student pursuing multiple majors, including at least two of the majors in the department, should consult with the undergraduate coordinator or chair of the department for details.
 Since the major is quite flexible, students are expected to consult with the undergraduate coordinator in the department. Before graduation, the undergraduate coordinator must approve the selection of sequences and electives.
 Please check with advisor about course offerings. Not all classes will be offered every semester.
 Forty (40) hours must be earned in courses numbered 300499.

Four Year Plan
The Marshall University Department of Mathematics prepare students for careers in the mathematical sciences and related disciplines. Graduates of our mathematics programs have had successful careers in government and industry. Our graduates have also earned advanced degrees in mathematics, statistics, engineering, and economics. Our degree programs may also be used to prepare for secondary mathematics certification and for professions such as law or medicine. The department has a dynamic and engaged faculty who focus both on excellent teaching and on many areas of mathematical research.
