StatisticsOffered by the Mathematics department.
Statisticians work with information collected by scientists and decision-makers in the hope of making sense of complicated questions. Statistics helps scientists and decision-makers of all kinds learn from experience and make decisions in the presence of uncertainty. Good statistical practice requires familiarity with probabilistic ideas and includes the ability to design experiments or surveys; to summarize and analyze observational data; to build mathematical models with probabilistic components; and to draw conclusions while quantifying the uncertainty associated with those conclusions.
