Statistics at Purdue University is the only doctorate-granting program in statistics in Indiana and is consistently rated by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top 10 departments in the United States. Students enjoy a great deal of interaction with faculty as well as small classes. For students with excellent preparation in high school, the department offers a master’s program in which a student can earn both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in five years.
The statistics major consists of two options:
- Applied statistics
- Mathematical statistics (Mathematical statistics usually leads to a double major in mathematics and statistics.)
