BS in Statistics
Statistics provides quantitative methods for analyzing and interpreting data, designing experiments and surveys, and determining informed decisions under uncertainty and modeling randomness and variability.
The undergraduate Statistics program provides a thorough foundation in applied statistics and probability through courses such as Intro to Mathematical Statistics, Intro to Probability, Mathematical Biology, Complex Analysis, to name a few. In addition to an in-depth mathematics curriculum, students have opportunities to incorporate a minor or area of special interest to delve into another discipline; from Biochemistry to Electrical Engineering to Physics.
Statistics can be applied almost anywhere, which is one of the reasons the employment is projected to grow 34% from 2014-2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Opportunities are available for Statisticians in a wide range of industries including finance, insurance, pharmaceutical, medical, engineering, life sciences and internet search, among others.
