The Bachelor of Science in Applied Statistics at Coastal Carolina University
seeks to provide students with a solid foundation in all aspects of statistical
analysis; including programming, data analysis, and oral and written commu-
nication. A more traditional program in statistics consists of a balance between
theory and application. Along with the more traditional attributes, the degree
will blend together statistical methods along with programming and commu-
nication skills that are necessary in today's job market. The degree program
requires all students to take core courses, coursework that delivers a strong
foundation in Mathematics and Statistics, and major coursework that exposes
students to advanced statistical methods and programming.
