# Graduate Minor

## Objectives and Outcomes

Auburn University offers a graduate academic minor in Statistics administered by the Graduate School in cooperation with the Statistics Coordinating Committee and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The objective of the minor is to provide education and training for students whose graduate research includes a substantial amount of statistical methodology and/or data analysis. Students are required to complete 12 hours of graduate level statistics course work and demonstrate the ability to apply statistical methodology to problems in research.
