Interdisciplinary Major in Applied Statistics
The Interdisciplinary Major in Applied Statistics provides students with the opportunity to integrate the study of statistics with another quantitatively intensive discipline. Knowledge of statistics is becoming increasingly important in many disciplines, so that students completing this major will have many options available upon graduation.
Students completing this major will be well prepared to design experimental studies and analyze data, in both their emphasis field and other areas. They will also be well prepared for graduate study in statistics. With careful planning, it is possible for statistics majors complete an MS in Statistics at UVa with one additional year of study. Those interested in the BA/MS program should contact the Department’s major advisor at the earliest possible date.
The major program has five concentrations: Biostatistics, Econometrics, Engineering Statistics, Mathematical Statistics, and Actuarial Finance. The prerequisites required to declare any concentration are single variable calculus through the second semester, fulfilled by one of MATH 1220, MATH 1320, or APMA 1110, and an introductory Statistics class, (i.e. STAT 1100, STAT 2020 or STAT 2120).
