The Power of Data

Statistics is an integral part of solving our world's most complex challenges. Everything from disease prevention and public policy to sports success relies on it.

Here you'll learn how to collect, analyze, and interpret data. It's through that work that you will discover and tell the stories that reside within the quantitative information. In the world of “big data,” statisticians work to find and extract information from huge databases, such as optimal defensive shift of a baseball team given a particular batter.

Our students go on to successful careers in business, politics, science, academia, and more. Explore our website to learn much more.
