Degree Overview

To give the students both breadth and depth and to introduce them to a variety of fields where statistics may be applied, we offer three emphases for the degree: science, business, and economics.

Upon completion of the Bachelor of Science in Statistics a student will be able to:

  •  develop basic programming skills and use of various software such as Mathematica, Matlab, SAS, and R; apply these skills to solve problems in statistical inference, data analysis, simulation, and statistical learning.
  • formulate and analyze mathematical conjectures, construct proofs in sound mathematical English, and use these skills to write proofs of statements in probability theory and mathematical statistics.
  • develop practical insights in modeling real-world phenomena using a model toolbox of probability models such as Markov chains, and statistical models such as multivariate linear regression model, and use computational methods to obtain solutions in probing such models.
