The statistics major emphasizes: a) mathematical statistics and probability, b) applied statistical methods, c) data analytic and statistical computing skills, d) consulting and communication skills, and e) fieldwork experience. 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 Bachelor of Arts in Statistics are able to:

  • Apply mathematical and statistical models to solve research problems.
  • Use basic and advanced statistical methods to analyze data.
  • Use statistical programming and computing skills to manipulate and analyze data.
  • Communicate the results of statistical analyses in reports and presentations.

Although a minor in statistics is not offered, students may be interested in the minor in data science.
