Statistical Methods Minor

Statistics is the science of learning from data. When you pursue a minor in statistical methods, you’ll work with students from across the university, exploring the various ways of processing and using data to make sense of our world and decisions in the face of uncertainty.

Complement Any Major

If you want to improve your data analysis skills, this minor was designed for you — especially if you’re considering graduate school in data-driven areas (such as psychology, biology or business) or a data-oriented career in industry. Pair it with any major to add a solid statistical foundation to your studies.

Improve Your Marketability

Pursuing a minor in statistical methods, statistics, or actuarial science prepares you for a range of careers such as:

  • environmental protection
  • consumer marketing
  • banking and finance
  • insurance
  • agribusiness
  • medical research
  • economics
  • teaching
  • …and many more!

Small Classes & Individual Attention

No graduate teaching assistants here.

Truman’s 16:1 faculty-to-student ratio means you’ll be working one-on-one with full-time professors. You’ll find your instructors are more available and experienced than many at larger institutions, and our intimate class sizes ensure you’ll get the one-on-one instruction you need to succeed.

Outside the classroom, join a lively community of learners, collaborating with students and faculty in research, or consulting in Truman’s Center for Applied Statistics and Evaluation.
