The Bachelor of Science in Statistics prepares students to serve as statistical programmers and data analysts in the public and private sectors. The program provide students with in-depth knowledge and skills to understand data, uncertainty, and natural variation, and use evidence to solve complex problems. Students will develop a deep understanding of the mathematical theories and principles underlying statistical methodology, data analysis and statistical modeling, and the quantification of uncertainty. Students will also gain extensive computational experience with data – image, text, and numeric – and be able to quantify and communicate results to stakeholders. Graduates of the program will be qualified to address the statistics needs of an array of data-rich organizations, from research in the biological sciences to government, health and technology. Graduates also will be well-prepared and competitive for advanced graduate study in statistics and allied disciplines.
