Most students begin with Stat 212: Statistics for the Sciences. Students with AP Statistics (4 or 5) should begin with MSCS 264: Intro to Data Science.
Some students can take Stat 212 or MSCS 264 in their first year. Often there is not space in courses to meet first year student demand. Taking your first Stats/MSCS course your sophomore year allows plenty of time to complete the Statistics and Data Science concentration.
CREDIT FOR PREVIOUS COURSEWORK/PLACEMENT
- AP scores of 4 or 5 may be sufficient preparation for Stat 272. Since many students have not had exposure to statistical software (R) we encourage beginning MSCS 264: Intro to Data Science before Stat 272.
- Credit for transfer courses or other programs are done in consultation with the Registrar, the Statistics Program Director and MSCS Chair.
