STA101 Statistical Foundations

A course emphasizing the empirical and scientific approaches to disciplines involved in statistical and data analytics sciences. Students learn the historical foundation of each departmental program area. Students will also familiarize themselves with the perspectives and specialties of our department faculty while systematically and critically reviewing the expanding roles of data-centric sciences. The course focuses on teaching, writing, developing a future internship, exploring potential graduate work, and engaging in professional associations from a Christian worldview. Note: This course is designed to introduce students in statistics-related majors (Applied Statistical Analysis, Statistics and Data Analytics, Actuarial Science, Sports Analytics, etc.) to the discipline. It is not designed as a major or general education course in statistics and does not fulfill the ‘introduction to statistics’ requirement for any major. Pass/Fail. (1 unit; Fall)
