Statistics, BS

Statistics is distinct from mathematics as a field of study, yet is founded upon the theory of probability – the mathematics of chance. The Bachelor of Science in Statistics is a degree program emphasizing statistics both as a science unto itself and as a service science, with powerful applications in such disciplines as biology, medicine, sociology, chemistry, agriculture, education, engineering, economics, psychology, and quality control.

The Bachelor of Science in Statistics features required courses in mathematics (calculus, linear algebra) and in statistics (applied statistics, theory of statistics, statistical methods). Advanced electives in statistics or mathematics are selected from an extensive menu of choices (e.g., experimental design for students interested in the “real-world” use of statistics, or real variables for those preparing for graduate study in theoretical statistics). In addition, students take several courses in a discipline in which statistics can be applied; biology, engineering, management, and psychology are just some of the many possibilities.
