With the increasing use of modern technology, data-handling and data analysis skills have become vital. Employers are searching for people with these skills. Knowledge of statistics is useful in understanding a vast amount of information. The study of statistics enables you to model uncertainty in data and draw organized scientific conclusions. Statistics is an essential tool for many disciplines in science, business, behavioral and social sciences, allied health professions and technology. Specific careers in theses disciplines all require some form of statistical expertise and consequently a minor in statistics opens up wide opportunities for students majoring in these areas.
The Statistics Minor program will enable students to combine statistics with their major discipline and to use statistics to enhance that discipline.
The program is administered by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
Students in the Statistics Minor will …
● be trained in computational methods of statistics using the most current statistical software packages.
● strengthen their credentials to give them a competitive edge for entry level success in the job market or graduate or professional school.
