Majors and Programs

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Statistics

Statistics is the science of collection, organization, analysis, and interpretation of data. The principles of statistics apply to a wide variety of professional and scientific fields. There are many opportunities for students to apply methodology learned in statistics courses to biotechnology research. In courses about design of experiments and survey sampling, students learn how to efficiently collect data. Courses in applied probability modeling include applications in bioinformatics and genomics. Courses in time series analysis and spatial data analysis examine patterns in data related to time and space. Students may wish to combine a major in a biotechnology field with a second major, or minor, in statistics.
