UC Davis in top five for bachelor's degrees in Statistics - ASA

UC Davis continues to rank in the top five in the nation for undergraduate degrees awarded, as reported by the American Statistical Association. 

In the November edition of AMSTAT News it is reported that in the period from 2015 to 2019 there were 671 bachelor's degrees in statistics awarded by UC Davis, showing a growth of 60 in 2015 to 195 in 2019, placing UC Davis fourth in the US overall. 

This reflects the extraordinary growth in the field of statistics, but also the strength of our undergraduate program. We would like to thank our undergraduate advisors, Kim McMullen and Prof. Debashis Paul, and the undergraduate committee, for their continued hard work in making our undergraduate program such a success.
