Faculty: Faculty of Arts & Science
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Statistics, General
Description: Every minute of every day data is generated at a staggering rate. That “big data” has the potential to do many things—reveal business trends, prevent diseases, improve safety and fight crime. The power of data lies not in the bits and bytes themselves, but in what you do with them.

When you major in Applied Statistics, you analyze and explore a wide range of data and use statistics to find patterns, trends and connections that support strategic decisions. You gain a strong theoretical foundation in mathematics and computer science while focusing on the practical application of statistics that can be used in almost every industry and sector, including government, oil and gas, insurance, finance and medical and biological research.
