There is a growing need for qualified statistical analysts of the ever-increasing amounts of data collected in business, industry, and government. The Certificates in Applied Statistics program is designed to give students a strong background in statistical methodology and data analysis in preparation for opportunities in the work force or for graduate studies.
Students will gain competence in such topics as descriptive statistics, estimation, confidence intervals, probability and inferential techniques, simple and multiple regression, analysis of variance, and more-advanced topics. Students can focus on a particular application area such as economics, psychology, sociology, geology or environmental science through the choice of an elective course and the data analysis project.
Programs are offered at the undergraduate and graduate level.
These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
This is an on-campus program.
