Applied Statistics

You’ve always liked the idea of figuring out the likelihood of an outcome by examining numbers – because numbers don’t lie.

Statistics is the mathematical science that collects, analyzes, and interprets numerical data using the theory of probability. At Bryant, you can concentrate in Applied Statistics with either a strong calculus foundation or in a more applied way.

You can also choose an Applied Statistics minor to complement a concentration or major in the College of Business or the College of Arts and Sciences. Many disciplines depend on the information provided by statistics, and, in the minor, you will enhance your ability to solve more complex quantitative problems.

If you choose to study Applied Statistics, you will be eligible to receive SAS® certification in data mining by taking four specific courses. Bryant is among only 18 universities worldwide to offer this joint program approved by the SAS Institute.

Future careers, post-grad opportunities

Upon graduating, you will be equipped to enter careers in government agencies and consulting firms, or you can work as a financial analyst, statistical analyst, or financial consultant. You will also be well prepared to pursue a graduate degree in mathematics, statistics, or economics.
