About

The Bachelor of Science in Statistics offered at George Mason University is designed to provide a framework for students to develop connections between statistical concepts and theories and their applications to statistical practice.

Overview

It will prepare statisticians who can use modern statistical techniques to design studies, collect data, analyze and visualize high dimensional data sets, and draw valid conclusions in an increasingly data-centric world.  In this program, students will meld the time-tested concepts and theories of statistics with modern methods of analysis, in order to interpret the data that is collected in nearly every discipline and every sector of industry and government.

The BS in Statistics offered at George Mason University requires a total of 120 credit hours, including major core requirements, concentration requirements, and Mason Core requirements.  

The program’s major core curriculum provides students with a firm foundation in statistics, mathematics, and computing.  

Selection of a concentration allows a student to specialize in applied, theoretical, or computational aspects of statistical practice. 

Students will select one of three concentrations: Applied Statistics, Mathematical Statistics, or Statistical Analytics.  

The Applied Statistics concentration focuses on developing proficiency in analytical methods applicable to a specific discipline of the student’s choosing.  

This is accomplished through the requirement to complete a minor in a field that makes substantial use of data analysis.  

The Mathematical Statistics concentration is designed for students interested in mastering the theoretical underpinnings of statistics and probability; this concentration is recommended for students who intend to continue graduate studies in statistics or whose main focus is on research. 

The Statistical Analytics concentration blends the disciplines of computer science and statistics in a very modern way and is designed for students interested in applying concepts from statistics and computer science to the analysis of massive data sets.

Graduates of this program can look forward to careers in local, state, and federal government, and in the many industries that conduct scientific research, collect, and analyze data.  

They will enter the workforce with the ability to impact science, public policy, technology, and industry in a positive way through their expertise in data collection, analysis, synthesis, and interpretation, each with the highest ethical standards. Graduates will also be well prepared to continue their studies in graduate schools if they so desire.
