    • MATH 4820: Statistics
    • MATH 4830: Applied Statistics
  3. Advanced Methods (choose one)
    • MATH 4387: Regression Analysis, Modeling & Time Series
    • MATH 4394: Experimental Designs

An independent data analysis project with a report and presentation to demonstrate proficiency with data analysis techniques and a statistical computing software package. Enroll for one hour of MATH 4840 (Independent Study) or in an equivalent course pre-approved by the Certificate Coordinator.

Grade Requirements

Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA or above in these courses with no credit given for courses with grades below B-.

Residency Requirements

Since a certificate is a University of Colorado Denver certification of a student's specialized knowledge in an advanced subject area, all courses in the certificate program are expected to be taken in residency at the University of Colorado Denver.
