About Our Department

Education in the Statistics discipline acquaints students with the role played by probabilistic and statistical ideas and methods in the many fields of science, medicine, technology, and even the humanities.

We provide instruction in the theory and application of techniques that have been found to be commonly useful, and offer advanced training through interdisciplinary and graduate programs.
