How Many Relatively Equal Statistics Courses Do Universities Have?

Hofstra University has these undergraduate statistics courses:

Biology 100: Biostatistics*
Business Analytics 1: Introduction to Business Statistics*
Business Analytics 122: Intermediate Business Statistics
Mathematics 8: Elementary Mathematical Statistics*
Mathematics 117: Statistics for Economics
Mathematics 137: Mathematical Probability and Statistics
Mathematics 138: Mathematical Probability and Statistics
Psychology 40: Statistics*
Sociology 180: Statistics in Sociology*

You can only get credit for one of the courses with a * because of how much material they have in common. I'm wondering how statistics for different majors works at other colleges.

Adelphi University, which is near Hofstra University, provides the same transfer course credit for Mathematics 8 and Mathematics 137 from Hofstra, which is not proper. For one thing, a student could take both of those statistics courses at Hofstra because they are not substitutes for each other. Mathematics 8 has only high school mathematics as a prerequisite. Mathematics 137 has Analytic Geometry and Calculus II as a prerequisite.

Math Focus: Stochastic processes, statistical inference, data mining, computational linguistics
The University of Hong Kong has a bunch of those too. In the Statistics and Actuarial Sciences department alone, there are Introductory Statistics, Elementary Statistics, Statistics: Ideas and Concepts and Business Statistics. Note, however, that they vary greatly in difficulty: Introductory Statistics is by far the hardest, and Elementary Statistics the easiest. There's also Analysis of Economic Data as well as statistics courses from Psychology, Biomedical Science and Politics and Public Administration. Very probably Sociology has one as well though I'm not sure. There's also a statistics + lin alg course for engineering students.
