Statistics

We live in a world increasingly driven by data. How can we use numbers to solve real-world problems?

Companies and organizations from all industries are inundated with data every day. Brands have access to the behaviors and preferences of their customers, which can be transformed into marketing insights. In the shaping of public policy, decision makers frequently require data on the economy, employment, crime and more to address complex issues in a practical way. In the medical field, data is used for everything from curing diseases to predicting epidemics. Statisticians are essential in exploring this data and the theories that surround it in order to understand, process, visualize and communicate its patterns and meaning to others. The statistics minor at Emmanuel is a great complement to majors in chemistry, biology, management, psychology, sociology and others, for in-demand careers in finance, research, healthcare, marketing and more.
