The IRVA is the last gasp of the formal academic ESP research from the last several decades. During the cold war a few Universities did serious studies to see if there was anything to the various psychic claims. Remote viewing (aka "astral travel") is one of the last still hovering on the fringes and still getting funding. Since a good deal of ESP research involves statistics, it would makes sense.<br>

<span>+ Jessica Utts ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessica_Utts Wikipedia], [http://anson.ucdavis.edu/~utts/ webpage]) works in parapsychology and "is on the current executive board of the International Remote Viewing Association". The IRVA is the last gasp of the formal academic ESP research from the last several decades. During the cold war a few Universities did serious studies to see if there was anything to the various psychic claims. Remote viewing (aka "astral travel") is one of the last still hovering on the fringes and still getting funding. Since a good deal of ESP research involves statistics, it would makes sense.<br>

<span>+ ====STA 13 (Elementary Statistics)====<br>
+ Learn the basics of statistics including but not limited to: probability distributions, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, combinatorics, simple linear regression, one-way/two-way ANOVA. Possibly the easiest class in mankind. Most people can learn this material on the job, but it might be good to take it anyways since employers look for it for any discipline.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 32 (Statistical Analysis through Computers)====<br>
+ Nearly equivalent to STA 13 in terms of statistical concepts covered; yet, there is more emphasis in the usage of computer package (R?). For stat majors, this is a lot more useful course than STA 13.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 100 (Applied Statistics for Biological Sciences)====<br>
+ Nearly equivalent to STA 13 in terms of statistical concepts covered. Emphasis in biological applications. Basically the same course as STA 13 and 32, but it is considered an upper division course.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 103 (Applied Statistics for Business and Economics)====<br>
+ Goes a little deeper than STA 13, applied problems in business and economics.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 104 (Nonparametric Statistics)====<br>
+ Many statistical analyses are based on common properties of known statistical models. Nonparametric statistics focus on parameterization via the data. These parameters are flexible and thus distribution free. This class teaches you how to apply the most common nonparametric statistical tests. Fit for more unusual problems. This potentially can be a difficult course, but usually the students are non-majors and that dilutes its rigorousness.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 106 (Analysis of Variance)====<br>
+ Teaches the mathematics of basic ANOVA. Considered one of the easiest classes that one can take in the major.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 108 (Linear Regression)====<br>
+ Teaches the mathematics (and data analysis depending on Prof.) of simple linear regression. Unfortunately, it doesn't teach you much more than that. The statistics department desperately needs an undergraduate class for nonlinear regression.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 120 (Probability and Random Variables for Engineers)====<br>
+ STA 131A for engineers.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 130AB (Brief Math. Stats and Prob. Theory)====<br>
+ Supposedly easier than STA 131ABC, but depending on the Prof., that is not the case. ''e.g.'' Samaniego for 130B is harder than Roychowdury for 131B.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 131A (Probability Theory)====<br>
+ Intro to probability theory. Learn about continuous and discrete probability distributions, CLM, moments, expected values, etc. Possibly the most important course in the stats major. Everything else (like hypo. testing) follows from the base knowledge of probabilities.<br>
+ <br>
+ ====STA 131BC (Mathematical Statistics)====<br>
+ You get taught the mathematics behind estimation, hypo. testing, simple linear regression, ANOVA, convergence and nonparametric statistics. The mathematical rigor not withstanding, the subjects covered here is quite boring (IMO).</span>

+ * [http://www.sas.com/ SAS] - Arguably the most used (and coveted by employers) program for people in the field of business and economics. The programming language is even less intuitive then R, but there are many resources and professionals that can help you in learning the language. It is also only used for data analysis, so one can't get as creative in its analysis as R, but it's very fast. Good to learn for people who are looking to work in companies which require data analysts. It also has the ugliest graphics engine ever.. (but again, it's fast).</span>
