Quantitative/Analytical Courses - Spring 2017

updated 10/21/16

Here's a selection of quantitative courses being offered at Duke, UNC and NCSU this spring. This list is not intended to be exhaustive; there are other courses that can be used for quantitative credit.  As always, be sure to check on prerequisites and level of presentation before committing yourself, and be sure that the course you have selected satisfies requirements for your program.  Different programs sometimes treat the same course differently.

Please refer to the web page on Statistics Sequences at Duke, UNC and NCSU to see how quantitative courses at the three universities fit (or don't fit) together.
