Statistics Minor

Statistics is the science of learning from data. When you pursue a statistics minor, you’ll work with students from across the university, exploring the use of data to learn about our world and make decisions in the face of uncertainty.

Prepare for Grad School

If you’re planning to earn either a master’s or Ph.D. in statistics and become a teacher, we designed the statistics minor especially for you. Even if you’re not, a strong background in “stats” can strengthen any course of study — from business to political science to agriculture.

Although most students pursuing this minor are math majors, any student with a Calculus III or better background will find it achievable.

Improve Your Marketability

Pursuing a minor in Statistics, Statistical Methods 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 for Truman’s Center for Applied Statistics and Evaluation.
