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.
The Mathematics Department offers both a Minor and a Concentration in Applied Statistics.
