On the mall outside Ford Hall, Adam Maidman, Ben Sherwood, Christina Knudson, Megan Heyman and Sijia Liang jump for joy when they get their new School of Statistics tee shirts.
Statistics is the science of learning from data. Statisticians collect, organize, analyze, interpret, and present data. We are constantly seeking better ways to do that in more and more challenging situations, using mathematics, computing, and insight. People use statistics in business, industry, medicine, government, and scientific research.
The School of Statistics is a leading center of statistical practice, education, and research. The School has about 15 faculty members and 65 graduate students. We offer programs leading to BA, BS, MS, and PhD degrees.
