Rapid advances in technology and the growing reliance on quantitative research have broadened the application of statistical reasoning to virtually all walks of life.  The physical, natural, health and behavioral sciences, as well as the business world, for instance, have need for individuals with training in Statistics beyond a basic first course.  The minor program in Statistics exposes students to contemporary statistical techniques, greatly increasing their marketability as well as their preparedness for graduate study in many disciplines.
