Students who have majored in mathematics or statistics and have an interest in applications of these fields or students who have majored in other areas and have a good mathematics background should seriously consider a career in statistics. It is quite common for students to enter a statistics graduate program with only a few statistics courses since statistics is primarily a graduate discipline.The Department of Statistics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is involved in research, teaching, and statistical consulting for the entire university. Some of our faculty are involved in projects funded by federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation, Environmental Protection Agency, and United States Department of Agriculture. Because of its activities, the collaborative work with other disciplines gives graduate students a wide range of opportunities to work with individuals in these disciplines and to learn practical applications of statistical principles from direct experience. In addition, Ph.D. students have the opportunity to double major in statistics and economics.
