Teaching Upper-Level Undergraduate Statistics Through a Shared/Hybrid Model

At small liberal arts colleges like Vassar College, statistics courses attract a large and growing number of students across campus, yet course offerings are limited due to faculty size. With two statisticians on campus, Vassar offers sections of six courses each year: Introduction to Statistics (algebra- and calculus-based), Probability, Applied Statistical Modeling (Stats II), Statistical Inference (classical), and Bayesian Statistics. These offerings stretch faculty resources as far as possible, but we were determined to establish a statistics major and provide a rich curriculum. To do so, we need more intermediate and advanced courses, but are constrained by faculty size and growing demand for current courses.
