For students majoring in statistics, all courses that are required or may be used as electives for the major are included in the determination of the grade point average in the major.

At least 21 of the required 41 credits (one half of the major) must be completed in residence at St. John Fisher College.

Since the statistics major is completed as part of a Bachelor of Arts degree, a minor or second major is required. A statistics major may NOT minor in mathematics.
