The Graduate School requires students wishing to obtain a Statistics MS or PhD Minor to find a member of the Statistics graduate faculty willing to serve on their graduate committee. This minor member will advise them on elective course selection. To identify a potential minor advisor, peruse faculty research interests for a professor compatible with your research. Contact that person to request committee membership. Alternatively, you might ask a professor of a statistics class you have taken.
