There is so much variation amongst statistics majors across schools. I think it is the major that varies the most. This is surprising, since statistics is math. A big reason for this is that sometimes it is offered from math department, and others from the business department (stern's stats major is a joke).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Where i am very confused, however, is that, at some schools such as CSU Eastbay , http://www20.csueastbay.edu/ecat/undergrad-chapters/u-stat.html#major-req-bs , they don't require calc 3! But don't the calc based stats courses use calc 3? At its neighboring school, CSU SF, calc 3 is required and is a prereq for the stats class. How is it that some schools could teach stats without calc 3 while others teach stats requiring calc 3?

Do most schools require calc 3 for stats major? I feel like I'm working so hard for a degree that would be perceived as a joke because it is at some schools....
