Concentration in Statistics and Operations Research

The concentration in Statistics and Operations Research is designed to increased the mathematics major’s abilities in data analysis, mathematical modeling, algorithmic reasoning, and problem solving, as well as one’s knowledge in the fields of probability and mathematical statistics. The concentration provides a viable background for graduate study in these fields, employment in virtually any industry, preparation for the first actuarial exam, and the training necessary to teach AP statistics.
