Statistics is the science of collecting and interpreting data subject to uncertainty. We live in a world where variability is everywhere. To make informed decisions we must understand the nature of variability, and make use of meaningful information. Without data we have to resort to hunches or guesses, neither of which can be relied on. Statistics tells us how to deal with variability, and how to collect and use data so that we can make good decisions.
Statistics is available as a minor. To complete a minor in Statistics, students must complete 60 points of STATS coded papers, including at least 30 points above 100 level.
