This is a combination of theoretical and methods courses in statistics, and courses in fields of application. The core course work is designed to prepare students for advanced study in statistics by emphasizing a foundation in probability and mathematical statistics, as well as courses in statistical methods such as experimental design and regression. Students will learn the logic of statistical inference; how to design an experiment to maximize the ability to find an effect or to rule out a null hypothesis; model building for weather, the economy, or customer sales; and strategies to determine whether a drug or a program had a significant impact on a group of subjects. Majors will combine this statistical knowledge with course work in other fields to create an area of specialization that will serve as a basis for the application of statistics courses, such as in economics, biology, or business. The area of specialization could become a minor or a second major for the student. These are a few of the careers that are possible in consulting firms, government agencies, business and industry. While entry-level positions do exist, some careers will require additional education beyond the bachelor’s degree. Graduates of the Statistics program will be qualified and competitive in fields such as statistics, economics, finance, and business.
