Bachelor of Science in Applied Statistical Analysis

Applied Statistical Analysis is a career that works in one of the hottest sectors of the job market and with the latest technology collecting, displaying, analyzing and mining data. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics the median annual wage for statisticians was $75,560 in May 2012, and employment of statisticians is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022. The median annual wage for actuaries was $93,680. The American Statistical Association has more information about careers in statistics.

The future belongs to Data Mining Scientists who engineer and apply statistical analysis to interdisciplinary problems. These engineers will build upon four foundational technologies: Cloud services and Cloud enabling technologies; Mobile devices, applications, and next-generation broadband networks; Big data/analytics; and Social Technologies.

The Applied Statistic Analysis program establishes an interdisciplinary mechanism with full-time professorial staff who will train you to be analytically and statistically prepared in one or several concentrations:

  • Biostatistics
  • Chemical Analysis
  • Public Health

Don’t be surprised that this major in Applied Statistical Analysis is rigorous and comprehensive, as since it prepares you (based upon your concentration) for careers in Math, Chemistry, Biology, Business and Global Studies. Incredibly, it’s estimated that 190,000 people with Applied Statistical Analysis skills are estimated to be needed by 2018.

At CBU, we’re pushing the envelope, setting the edge, and discovering new algorithms, finding new patterns and insights amid vast broadband fields of zeroes and ones, that no mind has seen before.

If you want to pursue a challenging and rewarding career that uses your natural problem solving abilities and technological skills to solve “real world” problems – this major is for you.

If you are wondering what you can do with a statistics major, whatcanidowiththismajor.com is a great resource.

An Applied Statistics BA and Applied Statistics Minor is also available.

Contact Dr. Linn Carothers, Program Director of Math, Statistics, and Physics, for more information.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Have a solid foundation of mathematical and statistical processes at a level comparable to that of students graduating with a BA/BS in Statistics at other universities. Processes should include (but are not limited to) a proficiency in collection, organization, design, and drawing inferences from data using appropriate statistical methodology and problem solving skills.
  • Demonstrate their ability to apply statistics in other fields at an appropriate level and demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge acquired from their major to real world models.
  • Demonstrate mastery of data analysis and statistical concepts by communicating critically reasoned analysis through written and oral presentations.
  • Acquire up-to-date skills and/or applications of computer and statistical programming related to future career choices.
  • Apply their knowledge of statistics through an in-depth senior project/research experience. Results will be presented in both written (paper, publication, portfolio, etc.) and visual (PowerPoint, poster, portfolio, etc.) formats.
  • Read, interpret, and critically analyze journal articles directed at undergraduate students.
