Applied Statistics Program Office: Department of Agricultural Economics, 216 Fleischmann Agriculture, 784-6701 The applied statistics minor provides a foundation for the use of statistical methods as a scientific tool for estimation and hypothesis testing. By emphasizing applications in the physical, life and behavioral sciences, this minor should complement degree programs in most disciplines. Equivalent course work from other departments, e.g. CEP 440, EC 262, MATH 152, MATH 352 or PSY 210, maybe substituted for APST 270. Contact the minor adviser in the department of agricultural economics for further details. Required courses Two mathematics courses including calculus ................. .

The tracks are: environmental chemistry, ecological toxicology, and environmental toxicology and health. The environmental chemistry track focuses on the source, transport, transformation and fate of chemicals in the environment. The ecological toxicology track addresses biological and ecological issues of fate and effects, ranging from biochemical mechanisms of toxicity in nonhuman species to biogeochemistry of xenobiotics in manmade and natural ecosystems. The environmental toxicology track addresses issues in human health and environmental quality, including biochemistry, physiology and nutrition. Prospective graduate students should have a GRE score exceeding 1,000 (verbal plus quantitative), TOEFL score exceeding 600 (international students), and an undergraduate or graduate major in biology, chemistry, ecology, physics or human health (or a related major).

International Affairs Program Office: 240 Mack Social Science, 784-6791 18-19 The International Affairs Program administers an interdisciplinary major in international affairs, minors in Asian studies and Latin American studies (see separate listings), a Model United Nations Program, the University of Nevada student component of the exchange program with Beijing Language and Culture University, the Harry M. Chase Jr. scholarship program and an internship program. It also serves as adviser to the International Affairs and Model United Nations student organizations. The major in international affairs involves an "expanded field of concentration" involving 36 credits plus prerequisites. As a consequence, those who select this major may, under appropriate circumstances, use up to three courses from this major to fulfill a required minor or second major. Similarly, both capstones may be taken within the majoriftaughtin different departments. The diversity of options within the major and stress placed upon study abroad experiences means that advisement should be sought prior to emollment. Entering students should plan to take Economics 10 1 and 102, International Affairs 100, and foreign language courses during their first year. In some cases, introductory courses at the 200-level may be recommended in the second semester. International students should consider the 1 00-level survey courses in European and American history or politics as ways of improving their performance in the Western Traditions sequence and in other courses in the major which assume some familiarity with history, society and government in Europe and North America. The courses comprising the international affairs major provide extensive training in analysis, synthesis, writing and speaking in a public setting. They may lead toward a broad range of careers, depending upon interests, specializations within the major, and tools acquired such as language fluency. In many cases, an additional professional degree will be required to enter attractive careers. Program advisement includes extensive advice on career options and requirements. Internships may provide the experiential basis for choosing or rejecting careers. The major in international affairs consists of a 21-credit required component and a 15-credit specialized option. The latter includes a senior thesis supervised by an appropriate faculty member, with topic and supervisor approved by the program director. Area study options require an appropriate language.
