Intercollegiate Graduate Statistics and Data Science Minor


The Intercollegiate Graduate Statistics and Data Science Program (IGSDSP) is a formal University of Tennessee, Knoxville, academic program established to enable students to earn a minor in statistics simultaneously with a master’s or doctoral degree in another department. Approved course work in statistics taken to meet the requirements for a master’s or doctoral degree in another department may also count toward the statistics minor. The program is open to graduate students in all participating departments which have an approved minor and/or MS joint major curriculum offered through the program. The program is administered by an executive committee, consisting of college representatives from all colleges, with advisory input from the program faculty.
