BS Statistics

The Bachelor of Science in Statistics (BS STAT) is a four-year degree program with a total of 143 academic units in its curriculum which includes courses in statistics, mathematics, and computer science. The rest of the courses include elective and general education courses. The program is designed to make a BS Statistics graduate flexible through exposure to the basic sciences, to build a career in business, industry, academe or government, or to pursue graduate studies in statistics and its allied fields.
