Statistics is basic to quantitative research in the biological, physical, and social sciences. Because its methods are based on mathematics, it requires a thorough understanding of mathematical methods as well as an appreciation of scientific methods, computation, and practical problems.

The Bachelor of Science in Statistics is an interdisciplinary program offered for students who intend to pursue an advanced degree, or who are planning careers as statisticians in industry, business, government, or scientific research.

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