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, and with a modest amount of advance planning will be able to complete an MS in Statistics at UVa with one additional year of study. Students interested in the B.A./M.S. program should contact the Department’s major advisor.

The major program has concentrations: Biostatistics, Econometrics, Engineering Statistics, Mathematical Statistics, and Actuarial Finance. The prerequisite for all concentrations: Single variable calculus through the second semester, fulfilled by one of Math 1220, Math 1320, APMA 1110, and an introductory statistics course, fulfilled by one of STAT 1100, STAT 1120, STAT 2020, STAT 2120, or STAT 3120.
