The concentration in statistics provides course work in both statistical methodology and theory that prepares students for well-paying and highly satisfying jobs in a wide array of industries and academia. After completing a core of foundational mathematics courses, students in the statistics concentration begins a sequence of courses that provide experiences in thinking about and applying statistical methodologies in concrete settings. In upper level course work, students are introduced to the mathematical theory that underlies the theory of statistics. In these upper level courses, students will use calculus to see that the procedures they learned in the lower level courses were selected because those procedures make optimal use of the available data.
Students seeking licensure as a teacher of Mathematics (grades 5-8 or 8-12) must also complete a second major in Secondary Education.
