The Department of Mathematics is pleased to offer a B.S. degree in Statistics. Statisticians assist in the collection and analysis of data thus providing decision makers information on which to base decisions. Knowledge of statistics and data handling helps students in almost every discipline. There are many opportunities in the job market for students with a degree in Statistics, and the program is ideal as preparation for a graduate degree in Statistics in any major university. The degree offers a wide variety of applied and theoretical courses in statistics, including statistical computing using both SAS and R programming.

### Matriculation Requirements

- Completion of MATH 1210 Calculus I QL and MATH 1220 Calculus II (or equivalent) with an overall GPA of 2.5 or better
- Student must meet with the math department advisor and declare an intent to major in statistics.
