The Certificate in Applied Statistical Modeling equips undergraduate students with the tools necessary to understand how to apply statistics to their primary field of study. This certificate program is designed to complement diverse degree programs and to appeal to students across the University in engineering, science, economics, mathematics, and many other disciplines. Certificate students will fulfill a two-course sequence on statistical modeling, a two-course sequence on probability and inference, and complete two elective courses (six hours) in statistics, machine learning, econometrics, etc. from the approved elective list. Three elective hours must be upper-division, and only one introductory statistics course may count towards the elective requirement. 

Students must complete 18 semester hours of courses as follows in "Course Requirements."
