Statistics programs within the department include both a B.A. and a B.S. in Mathematical Statistics, and an M.S. with a track in Mathematical Statistics. We also offer a Graduate Certificate in Data Science. In addition, the department offers a B.A. and a B.S. in Mathematics, a B.S. in Applied Mathematics, a B.S. in each of Mathematical Business and Mathematical Economics, and an M.S. with a track in Mathematics, along with a vibrant research atmosphere across many areas of mathematics.
