Statistics Minor

When you pursue a minor in Statistics, you develop a critical understanding of statistical principles so you can apply your data analysis skills to nearly any area you are passionate about.  And you can gain valuable experience consulting for Truman’s Center for Applied Statistics and Evaluation.

Prepare for Grad School

A strong background in stats can strengthen any course of study — from business to political science to agriculture. And if you’re planning to earn either a master’s or Ph.D. in statistics and become a teacher, the statistics minor is a great fit for you.

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

Pursuing a minor in Statistics 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
