The Master of Science degree program in Applied Statistics is designed to prepare students for employment as professional statisticians in business, government, or industry, or to prepare students for doctoral studies in statistics or biostatistics. The program provides students with a thorough grounding in the statistical techniques used for the practical analysis of data. A core of required courses provides a thorough grounding in the theory and methodology needed for the design of experiments, and, the collection and subsequent analysis of data.
Communication students gain an understanding of human communication through the acquisition of skills in speaking, writing, and critical thinking. The Bachelor of Arts in communication is suitable for students who wish to enter a communication-related career or for individuals interested in personal development.
Our curriculum fosters critical thinking and scientific reasoning, and many courses, including cell culture, biostatistics, cell and molecular laboratory, and others, build particular skills. A 200-acre biology preserve on campus, and nearby parks and preserves such as the Beavercreek Wetlands, provide excellent opportunities for terrestrial and aquatic field studies, as do field-based courses like ornithology and Amazon ecology. Many undergraduate students include faculty-guided, independent research projects in their academic programs.
