Fall Term Break
Looking for an online statistics course?
Need an introductory statistics course but can't fit an on-campus class into your schedule? Arts and Science Online is offering a new Introduction to Statistics course, BIOL 243, in place of STAT 263 online. Offered for the first time in Winter 2019, BIOL 243 online covers the same content and is taught by the same professor as GPHY 247/3.0, KNPE 251/3.0, NURS 323/3.0, POLS 385/3.0 and PSYC 202/3.0. It is also a substitution for STAT 263/3.0 in most Plans.
If you would like to take BIOL 243 Introduction to Statistics (online) as a core course in your Plan, we recommend that you check with your department's Undergraduate Chair first to ensure that this course will satisfy the department's requirement.
