Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

The Department of Statistical Science began offering the B.S. in Statistics in Fall 2006 and the minor in Statistics in Fall 2007. These degrees are intended to provide the students with the necessary background into both the theory and application of statistics as it is used in today’s society. The major is intended for those students who either want to seek employment with the B. S. degree or continue towards their advanced degrees. The minor will most likely be taken by students who intend to enter graduate school in an area other than statistics.
