Statistics

Associate of Arts (DTA)

 

Statistics is the science of learning from data. Statisticians collect, analyze and interpret data for a wide variety of purposes in many different fields. The demand for statisticians is growing, as are salaries. 

Statistics

TCC offers courses that cover the first 2 years of a typical 4-year college statistics program (college-level courses) as well as courses to develop math skills needed for college-level courses. This program prepares students for successful transfer at the junior level at our primary transfer universities, provided they meet entry requirements.

Associate of Applied Science Degree

While in high school, students should pursue all the available courses in mathematics. Before enrolling in their first math course at TCC, students must take a mathematics placement test unless they have passed a college-level mathematics class within the last two years.

 

Some students may need to take additional prerequisite courses.

  • Students who plan to transfer to any University of Washington campus are strongly encouraged
    to take ENGL& 102 or ENGL& 103 for their English Composition/Speaking Skills credits.
  • The humanities and social sciences courses must be chosen from the humanities and social sciences courses on the Approved Distribution List.
  • At least one course must be chosen from the list of approved multicultural courses on the Approved Distribution Course List.
  • PE activity courses cannot be used as elective courses.
