The statistics specialization of the mathematics major enables students to concentrate their studies in statistics. The Undergraduate Bulletin contains the official list of major requirements. However, students will meet all their requirements by completing the major requirements listed below and in the checklist, meeting the department’s retention and GPA requirements, and completing TCNJ’s liberal learning requirements. Below are additional program documents and other information about the specialization. For more information, please contact your advisor or the department chair.
Please Note: This specialization has been replaced by the Data Science and Statistics specialization beginning Fall 2023.
