SUNY Oneonta Statistics majors study the theoretical and practical applications of statistics, develop data analysis and problem-solving skills, and learn to use probability and sampling theory to study the relationships between groups of measurements. Two tracks are available: standard and actuarial.

Related majors in Mathematics and Computer Science are also available, along with minors in mathematics, computer science and computer information technology, and a 3-2 engineering program.

Seminars and independent study projects will allow you to explore more advanced topics and to work with faculty members in special areas of interest. Majors in the department also have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on joint research projects, and some have co-authored papers or presented their work on campus and at regional meetings of the Mathematical Association of America.

The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science & Statistics student club, Sanford Society, provides academic and social activities.

My dream job is to be a statistician for pro sports. I love math and I love sports, so if I could couple those two things into a job that I get to do for the rest of my life? I’d love nothing more – that would be incredible!
