About

The mission of the Statistics program of The University of Akron is to provide students with a quality education in statistics, in which they acquire fundamental statistical skills and develop a sense of statistics as a profession.

Overview

In addition, the graduates of the Statistics program of The University of Akron will be prepared for advanced studies in statistics and related disciplines, and for the diverse uses of statistics in business, industry, government, scientific research, and society.

Statistics provides the reasoning and methods for producing and understanding data. Statisticians are specialists, but statistics demands they be generalists, too. One advantage of working in statistics is that you can combine your interest with almost any other field in science, technology, or business.

Statisticians provide crucial guidance in determining what information is reliable and which predictions can be trusted. They often help search for clues to the solution of a scientific mystery and sometimes keep investigators from being misled by false impressions.

A master's degree or PhD is very helpful and often recommended or required for higher-level positions. The University of Akron’s graduate statistics program focuses on applied statistics and the master’s degree is in demand with demand expected to increase over the next decade.
