Eberly College of Science

This option focuses on the statistical models and methods that are needed to discover and validate patterns in datasets of all sizes. Students in this option will study the probabilistic foundations upon which innovative statistical techniques are built while learning both classical regression-based and more modern statistical computing techniques requiring computing expertise. Upper-level statistics and mathematics courses will prepare students to apply the theoretical machinery of modern statistics to the search for answers to questions involving big data.
