  • Quantitative Methods and Data Management

    The minor in Quantitative Methods and Data Management prepares students in any major to marshal, analyze, and present quantitative information in a governmental, business, non-profit, or research setting. The minor is flexible. It can enhance a major that already requires quantitative competence, or it can complement a major with no such requirement.

    The minor consists of 21 credit hours. Courses completed for the major may also count toward the minor, thus reducing the credit hours required for the minor.
