Statisticians design experiments, analyze data, and interpret results. The National Science Foundation estimates that the demand for Statisticians will exceed the number of graduates for at least the next ten years. Western’s statistics major integrates mathematics and statistics coursework while emphasizing computer applications. A computer science minor is recommended.
Note: Students who complete all requirements for the statistics major (including MATH 1220, MATH 1230, MATH 2300, and MATH 2720) may request to have the General Mathematics Minor added to their degree. Please consult your academic advisor for details and to request this option.
