Statistics Major Map
The BS Statistics Program provides students with instruction in the basic techniques, applications, and theories of mathematics and statistics. Students choosing statistics may complete a statistics project under the supervision of a faculty member. This provides students the opportunity to work with a faculty member on a consulting project or research problem. For students planning to attend graduate school, the research project is recommended. Internship opportunities also exist for students in the statistics major. Recent graduates have completed internships at the Mayo Clinic, insurance companies, local industry, and nonprofit organizations. Both consulting projects and internships are good choices for students seeking employment upon graduation.
Students who are interested in business or industrial applications of statistics might consider the fields of actuarial science or quality control. Specific information about these two fields follows the required coursework for the statistics major.
