A Message to Students and Parents
Statistics for Biological Sciences is a key course to introduce students to probability and applied statistics using specific examples of importance in various biological science subfields. Students taking STA100 in Ireland will have the advantage of taking this class with a very small group of students and will receive the type of personal attention that is not possible in the big lecture format offered on the UC Davis campus. In addition, the students will be able to complete a course required for many majors in a wonderful setting like Ireland. I am looking forward to interacting with the students who choose to enroll in this unique study abroad experience."
