# Mathematical Statistics, Emphasis

The Department of Mathematics offers an Area of Emphasis in Mathematical Statistics that is available only to Mathematics Majors or Applied Mathematics Majors. Students who completed an area of emphasis in mathematical statistics must have a demonstrated knowledge and understanding of statistical theory, techniques and methodologies, working with real data, and understanding of data analysis. An area of emphasis in mathematical statistics provides a window of job opportunities in business, government, industry and health sectors, and further studies in statistical sciences. For example, students with area of emphasis in mathematical statistics may be eligible to pursue the Master of Arts in Mathematics with an area of emphasis in statistics, with additional academic years of coursework. Students pursuing the mathematics major may choose an area of emphasis in mathematical statistics, while those pursuing the applied mathematics major must take a minimum of 15 CH in statistics-designated courses, none of which may count toward their major. The area of emphasis in mathematical statistics is not intended for students pursuing a major in statistics.

The requirements for an undergraduate Area of Emphasis in Mathematical Statistics consist of the following courses:
