UCSB campusProbability and Statistics

The Probability and Statistics concentration mainly attracts students interested in pursuing a doctorate degree in Statistcs or other scientific fileds. It requires PSTAT 160A-B (a continuation of PSTAT 120A), which is one of the most advanced upper division courses offered by the Department. The sequence PSTAT 120A and 160A-B begins with the basics of probability theory and leads to Markov chains, random walks, Brownian motion, their simulation and applications in financial mathematics. Students are advised to enroll in Math 117 and Math 118A-B-C as electives.

Recommended preparation for major: two years of algebra and courses in plane geometry and trigonometry at high school.
