Data has an infinite power to shape and advance our world—but only when collected and analyzed to its fullest potential. Statistics is the science concerned with this challenge–developing and studying methods for collecting, analyzing, interpreting and presenting empirical data. Students who pursue this degree path will be prepared to make sense of complicated data, learning to think critically about the context in which it was collected to draw meaningful conclusions. Coursework will include statistical theory, statistical computation, data analysis and mathematics. Statistics is a highly interdisciplinary field; graduates can expect to find applicability in virtually all scientific fields, while research questions in the various scientific fields motivate the development of new statistical methods and theory.
