ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2024 and after)

*Please Note: Face-to-face/in-person instruction of this program is available ONLY at the main campus in Tallahassee, FL. This program is NOT available via Online/Distance Learning.*

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and diversity requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The Statistics major works best if you start in the highest mathematics courses for which you have prerequisites. It is also beneficial for you to take STA2122 prior to the start of Term 5. Because collateral requirements for the major also satisfy the minor requirements in Mathematics, you may choose additional electives. Students anticipating graduate study in statistics are encouraged to take STA4322 and additional mathematics courses such as MGF 3301 (Introduction to Advanced Mathematics).
