Pair it with any major to add a solid statistical foundation to your studies.

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.
