Statistics and Data Science

When we buy something, we are dealing with data. When we use social media, we are dealing with data. When we save money in a bank, we are dealing with data. When we vote, we are dealing with data. Data is everywhere. We live alongside data in this intricately complex world, and big data is irreversibly changing the world.

The undergraduate major in Statistics and Data Science (SDS) will equip students with a solid foundation in the traditional statistical field and the exponential application of statistics in a modern connected world through data science. Data Science expands upon Statistics through the incorporation of modern fields such as data mining, machine learning, and high-performance computing, to manage the entire lifecycle of data, from its inception of specification, generation, gathering, analysis, clean-up, interpretation, so as to make decisions and develop policies that have societal impact.


Statistics and Data Science (SDS) program aim to:

  1. Cultivate critical thinking enabled by knowledge and understanding of statistics and data science. 

  2. Enable students to appreciate the centrality of statistics and data science in identifying and investigating complex questions in different fields.

  3. Prepare graduates to become ethical and responsible data professionals. 


Career Prospects:

This interdisciplinary major will be for students interested in understanding and addressing abundant data using statistical tools. The students who graduate from this major can later specialize in their studies or find career opportunities in data analytics, risk assessment, finance, technology, and market research.


The Statistics and Data Science (SDS) Program is offered by the Division of Mathematics and Data Science.
