  2. A math major can also be a statistics minor. If a student wants to be a math major and a statistics minor, the following apply:
    • Stat203, Econ204 and Stat286 cannot be counted to satisfy both the math major and statistics minor requirement;
    • At most one of the following courses can be counted to satisfy both the math major and statistics minor: Math218, Stat328 and Stat396.
  3. Math majors with economics concentration: If a math major wants to be an econ concentrator and a statistics minor, Math218, Stat286, Stat328 and Stat396 cannot be counted toward both the econ concentration and the statistics minor.
  4. Economics majors with math concentration: If an economics major wants to be a math concentrator and also a statistics minor, the following apply:
    • Math218, Stat286, Stat328 and Stat396, cannot be counted to satisfy both the stat minor and the math concentration requirement.
    • Econ304 cannot be counted toward statistics minor. (Econ304 is required by economics major.)
