B.S. in Statistics: Statistical Data Science

This track emphasizes data handling skills and statistical computation. It is recommended for students interested in statistical learning methodology, advanced data handling techniques and computational aspects of statistical analysis.

Notes:  

These requirements were put into effect Fall 2017.
