B.A. in Statistics

B.A. in Statistics is recommended for students who intend to pursue a career in a field that requires quantitative training with an emphasis in statistics. Knowledge and skills acquired will enable students to advance further in their career fields, whether in industry or in academia. The flexibility of the B.A. program enables it to be an ideal option for a dual major for those who major in social sciences, humanities, and business.

B.A. in Statistics coursework can be divided into two levels: preliminary (7 courses, 25 credits) and advanced (6 courses, 18 credits). The preliminary courses, which are the same for B.A. and B.S. degrees, include elementary statistics, calculus, and linear algebra. At the advanced level, students acquire deeper knowledge of probability and statistics. Half of advanced courses can be chosen from a list of electives based on a student’s interests.
