UF Stat Courses

Info on statistical courses that will be offered at UF during the 2018-2019 academic year. The list is not complete, given that much of the program for Spring 2019 is not yet finalized; however it will update as the year progresses. I think this should be a valuable resource to anyone in our department looking for a course covering particular statistical methods or software

Incidentally, the website itself was written in the statistical language R.
