Applied Statistics Minor

Data-driven research is growing at an explosive rate. Modern scientists are expected to have familiarity with much more complex methods of statistical analysis than was the case not too long ago. This Minor in Applied Statistics is designed to give students the skills they need to compete in this data-driven world and to gain experience and competency with the analysis of data in their major field of study. Students in this program will learn modern statistical methods beyond those covered in the curriculum for their majors. They will gain familiarity with statistical software and experience in analyzing real world data sets related to their major field of study. Students who complete the minor will, through their numeracy and comfort with data, have an advantage over other applicants when applying to graduate programs or industry jobs.
