## Suggested Order of Coursework for a Major in Statistics (without actuarial sciences emphasis)

The following two sample statistics schedules assume the student is in contact with an advisor for the appropriate general education requirements and has a strong mathematical background. Students who do not begin their mathematical sequence with MTH 201 will need to make appropriate changes. Suggested order of coursework one assumes students take MTH 201 in the fall of their first year; suggested order of coursework two assumes students take MTH 201 in the fall of their second year.

Students majoring in statistics who plan to do graduate work are strongly encouraged to take MTH 203, Calculus and Analytic Geometry III, in the fall of their second year and MTH 227, Linear Algebra I, in the winter of their second year.

Students majoring in statistics who plan to do graduate work are strongly encouraged to complete the three-semester calculus sequence by taking MTH 203 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry III, in the fall of their second year before taking MTH 227 - Linear Algebra I, in the winter of their second year.

Business courses in the application cognates have prerequisites that mandate some sequence in completing the courses. ACC 212 is required for FIN 320 and FIN 320 is required for FIN 321. The ECO courses require MTH 110, MTH 121 or MTH 201.
