A dramatic increase in the number of people trained in statistics and data analysis is required to fill the ever-increasing data analysis needs of our society. Consequently, professionals who can appropriately analyze and interpret data are in high demand. For students wanting to become proficient in the methods of statistics and data analysis, SMU offers a B.S. in Statistical Science and a minor in Statistical Science.
