Statistics

The University of Oregon does not have a formal department of statistics. However, a variety of courses are either exclusively or primarily about statistics. Over the past several decades, statistical techniques have become a primary tool of empirical research. As such, a variety of functional areas and disciplines teach applied statistical techniques. This is particularly true at the graduate level, where research plays an important role.

Degrees

The Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees with options that allow a specialty in statistics. Interested students should address inquiries about specific requirements to that department.

Statistics Courses

Students and advisors should be aware that, within any given area, two or more courses offered by different departments could contain such similar content that a student might not be granted credit toward graduation for more than one of the courses.
