Appendix B: Statistics Course in Partial Fulfillment of a Foreign Language Requirement

Departments and Areas of Specialization which permit the use of a two-semester statistics course sequence in lieu of one foreign language do so in accordance with the Ph.D. Coordinating Committee policy.

Acceptable courses in the Department Human Development (HUDM) are:

  • HUDM 4122 Probability and Statistical Inference
  • HUDM 5122 Applied Regression Analysis
  • HUDM 5123 Experimental Design

A passing grade must be received for both courses. R credit is not acceptable.

Competency tests are available from the Statistics faculty of the Department of Human Development, Programs in Measurement, Evaluation and Statistics by which students may demonstrate their proficiency at the HUDM 4122, HUDM 5122, and HUDM 5123 levels. A report of satisfactory achievement is to be submitted to the Office of Doctoral Studies by the faculty in Statistics.

Credit hours (points) earned in the two-semester statistics course sequence may be used to satisfy the minimum point requirement for the Ph.D.
