Statistics is a major that emphasizes: a) mathematical statistics and probability, b) applied statistical methods, and c) the development of data analytic and communication skills. The Statistics program gives students the education, skills, and experience required to steer research activities and analyze data in organizational settings. Education in Statistics at St. John Fisher College follows a model where students integrate mathematical statistics, applied statistical methods, and statistical computing.

Graduates of the B.A. in Statistics program are able to:

  • Explain the conceptual underpinnings and interpretation of statistics to organization laypeople and information-consumers.
  • Use basic and advanced statistical methods to analyze data and work with people to address organizational research and data analytic needs.
  • Apply knowledge of social/behavioral scientific research design to answer questions and solve problems in institutional contexts.
  • Communicate the results of statistical analyses in reports and presentations.
