B.A. IN Mathematical Sciences: Statistics Option
The Master of Science program in Computing, Statistics, and Mathematics is designed to prepare students to engage in professional activities mathematics, statistics and computing in business, government, industry and higher education. The concentrations focus on the use of mathematical tools to solve problems arising in applications of mathematics.
The prerequisite for admission to the program is that in addition to the University's admission requirements: 24-27 credits in calculus through Multivariate Calculus, Elementary Statistics, Linear Algebra, Programming in a high level language through data structures are required. Students lacking in some of the above prerequisites may, with advisement, enroll in undergraduate courses to fulfill the requirements.

Statistics Option with B.A. in Mathematical Sciences
The application of statistics is wide and increasing from proper running of Government, as a decision making tool in industry, to being a core component of modern educational curricula at all levels. Students trained in statistics can benefit from a wide variety of job opportunities. For example every industry, government, agriculture, business, law, and educational institution needs statisticians help determine the sampling and data collection methods, processing and analysis of data, interpretation of the results of the data analysis. According to the US Department of Labor , Bureau of Labor Statistics: There were 18, 370 jobs for statisticians, 14, 680 for Actuaries, 2470 for mathematicians. In the past year, there were 2, 827, 010 employments in Computer and Mathematical Science occupations in United States. The largest employer in the U.S. for statisticians is the United States government
The Statistics Option program in the Mathematical Sciences at Kean University trains students in the statistics program using the latest technology, and statistical software such as SAS, SPSS, Minitab, Excel, and other tools. There are three statistics laboratories and a peer tutoring service run by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
