Program Highlights

Statistics is the art of turning data into information. Built on a mathematical foundation, statistics involves the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data. It is used in academic disciplines from the natural sciences and engineering to the social sciences and humanities and applications abound in government, business, and industry.

We see statistics all around us on the internet, on television, and in books, magazines, and newspapers as well as academic journals. Every day we see charts and graphs, hear discussions of results from political surveys, and read about economic, sociological, and market research. Every informed citizen needs a fundamental understanding of statistics. A demonstrable knowledge of statistics will enhance your career prospects and is vital if you are going into any research program.
