Return to Statistics BA Programs  

The statistics major consists of at least 33 credits of coursework: 30-45 credits of core mathematics and statistics courses and any additional 3-credit statistics, mathematics, or computer science course approved by the statistics adviser. Modifications are permitted with the consent of the statistics adviser. With permission of the adviser, a student may take graduate courses in statistics and applied mathematics. Statistics majors interested in bioinformatics should refer to the requirements for the Statistics Major with a Concentration in Quantitative Biology - BA .

Hunter Core Requirement

Several courses within this major may fulfill parts of the Hunter Core Requirement (CUNY Common Core Requirement [CCCR], Concurrent Requirements). When selecting courses, it may be to a student’s advantage to choose courses that count toward the Hunter Core Requirement and also advance the student on the path to the major. Details on the Hunter Core Requirement can be found here: Hunter Core Requirement.

In the case of the Statistics major, the courses that meet CCC are:

Course CUNY Common Core Requirement
MATH 12500 (STEM)     Math/Quantitative Reasoning
MATH 15000 (STEM)   Math/Quantitative Reasoning
MATH 15500 (STEM)   Math/Quantitative Reasoning
STAT 21200   Math/Quantitative Reasoning
STAT 21300 (STEM)   Math/Quantitative Reasoning

Please note that no more than two courses from any one department will count for the CUNY Common Core Requirement.

Courses Required for the Major (30-45 credits)

Actuarial Sequence

A student interested in actuarial work should take the following courses. Students are also encouraged to take courses in accounting, economics and computer science.  A student majoring either in Statistics or Mathematics could also complete the Actuarial Sequence as a part of his/her major requirements. A review for the Actuarial Exams is not a part of the curriculum, however, and it is left to the individual student to study for and take those exams.
