As a Major
Statistical methods are crucial in numerous fields such as biology, physics, climate science, and finance, to name a few. The Bachelor of Arts in Statistics major is intended to provide students with fundamental knowledge and skills in probability, mathematical statistics, data analysis, and statistical computing. Students will explore the mathematical foundations of the theory of statistics. The demand for these skills has increased with the rise of big data. This major is intended to prepare students for graduate study in statistics or related subjects or for a career in data analysis or other related fields.
A student majoring in statistics cannot minor in mathematics; nor can they declare a second major in actuarial science, financial mathematics, or mathematics.
Please note – Any business courses completed for this major (CIS, OPR, STA) do not count toward the 90 liberal arts credit minimum for the BA degree.
