Statisticians are in very high demand. In fact, in 2013 the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that the number of statisticians will increase by 27% between 2012 and 2022.

Traditionally, a Master's degree is the entry-level educational attainment necessary for a job as a statistician. However, jobs in the areas of big data, predictive analytics and data science have quickly made a Bachelor's degree appropriate preparation for many jobs. The data and analysis skills developed in our statistics and mathematics and statistics majors, along with our co-major in analytics and minor in actuarial science will prepare students to work in a range of analytical and data-focused jobs, including but not limited to market research, credit or financial analysis and actuarial science. Many of our graduates also go on to master's or PhD programs in statistics or related fields.
