Undergraduate Program in Statistics

The statistics undergraduate program at UC Davis offers a large and varied collection of courses in statistical theory, methodology, and application. Based on these offerings, a student can complete a Bachelor of Science or Arts degree in Statistics. Statistics majors choose to pursue one of these three emphases:

  • The Applied Statistics option is very flexible, facilitating a double major or extensive elective course work in a field in which statistics is applied.
  • The General Statistics option emphasizes statistical theory and is especially recommended as preparation for graduate studies in statistics.
  • The Computational Statistics option emphasizes computing and it is designed for students particularly interested in the computational and data management aspects of statistical analysis.

All three options provide students with in-depth exposure to modern statistical reasoning and the science of statistical modeling. Majors develop the skills needed to utilize statistical techniques for addressing quantitative, data-based problems in fields as diverse as the biological and social sciences, engineering and technology, business, finance, and law, as well as health and education.

In this section of the website, you will find a wealth of information about the different program options in the statistics major, course requirements, sample schedules, advisors’ office hours, and etc. We put together a comprehensive list of on-campus resources and services. We also hope that you will read our advice and updates on internships and research.
