To those familiar with university structure, mine offers two different statistics courses (besides those that are offered to fields like soc. or bio. which are not open to non majors). One is offered by the statistics department, one by the math department. Is there a generalized difference between the two? Which would offer a sounder education? I'm thinking about going into an experimental physics PhD so my statistics education will probably be important... I'll be sure to ask my school advisors too. But I'm wondering if there's a general difference between the two.
