Statistics Minor

A minor in statistics is an excellent complement to majors in a wide range of fields. The minor program helps students learn to use statistical methods to summarize information and solve real-world problems.


View more information about minor program requirements. All course grades must be a C or above.

Introductory Statistics (choose one)

  • ST 305 Statistical Methods (4 credits- no longer offered)
  • ST 311, ST 350, ST 361, ST 370 or ST 380 and ST 312 Introduction to Statistics II (6 credits)
  • ST 371 Introduction to Probability and Distribution Theory and ST 372 Introduction to Statistical Inference and Regression (6 credits)

Intro to Statistical Programming in SAS

  • ST 307 Introduction to Statistical Programming-SAS (1 credit)

Statistics Electives

  • Add ST electives at the 400 level to reach a total of 16 credits for the minor


Due to high demand for courses, students should allow at least three semesters to complete the electives after declaring the minor. Potential minors are encouraged to take ST 307 at the same time they take ST 312 or 372, since 307 is a prerequisite for most more advanced ST courses.

Admission requirements for the minor:

  • At least 12 NCSU hours passed
  • Cumulative GPA of at least 2.0
  • Completion of either ST 312 or 372 with a grade of B or higher
  • GPA of 3.0 or higher for all ST courses


The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program. Students should enter a certification request electronically when submitting their graduation application.
