- Prereq: 6201, 6302 (623), or 6802 (622), and 6450 (645) or 6950; or permission of instructor. Not open to students with credit for 635.
- Syllabi 2019
- STAT 6620 Environmental Statistics
- Description: survey of statistical methods for environmental data, with a focus on applications. Topics include sampling, regression, censoring, risk analysis, bioassay, time series, spatial statistics, and environmental extremes.
- Prerequisite: 5302 (529) or 6450 (645) or 6910 or Geog 683.xx or 833.01; prereq or concur: Stat 6910; or permission of instructor. Not open to students with credit for 662.
- Syllabi 2016
- ENR 8600 Introduction to R for Environmental Sciences
- Designed for the very beginners (commented by Sam)
- ENR 8780 Quantitative Methods for Natural Resources
- 2014 syllabus example
- It's not exactly a beginner-level course, but it covers many of the basics of R and the tools you will likely use (scripts+theory), and the coursework is set up to use your own data! (commented by Garrett)
- PUBHBIO 6210 Design and Analysis of Studies in the Health Sciences I
- Description: Theory and application of basic statistical concepts for design of studies in health sciences, integrated with statistical software applications.
- Prerequisite: Grad standing in PubHlth, or enrollment in MS Pharmacology program, or permission of instructor.
- “I have taken PUBHBIO 6210 and 6211 Design and Analysis of Studies in Health Sciences I and II. 6210 is the prerequisite for 6211 and is more basic stats. I still learned a lot in that class once you get past the first month or so but 6211 was very useful in my opinion. You learn to use STATA in both which I know can be useful for some and not for others. In 6211 we learned about most of the parametric and non-parametric statistical methods and how to choose the best method based on your data and study design. I would recommend either class, especially taught by Lemeshow/Archer.” (recommended by Karen's student)
- PUBHBIO 6211 Design & Analysis of Studies in the Health Sciences II
- Description: A second course in applied biostatistical methods with an emphasis on regression methods commonly used in the health sciences. The focus is on linear regression and ANOVA. Integrated with use of computer statistical packages.
- Prerequisite: Grade of B‐ or above in 6210 (701), or permission of instructor. Not open to student with credit for 702.
- MOLGEN 5650 Analysis and Interpretation of Biological Data
- Description: Methods of analyzing biological data including: sampling, descriptive statistics, distributions, analysis of variance, inference, regression, and correlation. Emphasizes practical applications of statistics in the biological sciences.
- Prerequisite: Math 1149 or 1150 (150) or equiv, and 10 semester cr hrs at the 3000-level (or 300 level in the quarter system) or above in Agricultural or Biological Sciences. Not open to students with credit for 650.
- Foundation of Statistics (a CPDA course)
- One of four non-credit courses in the Certification in Practice of Data Analytics program, delivered in a 100% distance learning format. Introduction to statistics includes; a short discussion of where data comes from; data exploration; probability and random variables; the basics of statistical inference (e.g., sampling and inferring upon population parameters using statistics); testing statistical hypotheses and building confidence intervals; and an introduction to regression. Students will use the R software package in this course. 4 CEUs are granted upon successful completion of the course.

- "Especially in light of the classes that others took to fill biochemistry requirements, I am quite satisfied with this class. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for the microbial ecology ... but it began to fill in my knowledge gap of the field regarding the geochemical cycles and tools/methods used to measure various responses or transformations of soils. One caveat - it is heavily focused on agricultural soils, but much of the material should be broadly applicable." - Anonymous eMicro graduate student
