For Economic majors or minors, ECON 4304 Introduction to Econometric Methods can substitute for STAT 4804 Elementary Econometrics.
A maximum of 3 credits from either STAT 4964 Field Study (for internships or other summer experience), or STAT 4994 Undergraduate Research may count as a Statistic elective with prior approval from the department.
An upper-level course that is not offered by the Department of Statistics. Be aware of all prerequisites.
These courses must be different from the course completed in the major requirements section.
Virginia Tech requires 120 credit hours to graduate with a GPA of 2.0 or greater for all hours attempted. The 120 credit hours must include all required courses for the statistic major as outlined in this check-sheet. In addition, students must have an in-major GPA of 2.0 or greater. For purposes of GPA computation, courses in-major will include core requirements, major requirements, and restricted electives. If 120 credit hours are reached and a student does not meet the GPA requirement, the student must take additional in-major courses to raise the in-major GPA to a 2.0.
All students completing a B.S. in Statistics must complete MATH 1225 Calculus of a Single Variable-MATH 1226 Calculus of a Single Variable and STAT 3005 Statistical Methods. These courses are listed in Pathways to General Education above.
Some courses listed on this checksheet may have prerequisites; please consult the Undergraduate Course Catalog or check with your advisor for more information.
Students who did not successfully complete at least two years of a single foreign, classical, or sign language during high school must successfully complete six semester hours of a single foreign, classical, or sign language at the college level. Courses taken to meet this requirement do not count toward the hours required for graduation. Please consult the Undergraduate Catalog for details.
CMDA 2005 Integrated Quantitative Sciences-CMDA 2006 Integrated Quantitative Sciences is equivalent to all the following: STAT 3005 Statistical Methods and STAT 3006 Statistical Methods and STAT 3104 Probability and Distributions and MATH 2214 Introduction to Differential Equations and (MATH 2204 Introduction to Multivariable Calculus or MATH 2204H Introduction to Multivariable Calculus or MATH 2406H Mathematics in a Computational Context
