Mathematics is at the foundation of many of the sciences, and its development and understanding is crucial to the fabric of a technological society. As a course of study, mathematics offers a doorway to many exciting fields. While students of mathematics and statistics pursue their talent for finding innovative solutions to complex problems, they often acquire expertise in other fields, such as physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, engineering, and computer science.
Statistics is an information science as well as a mathematical science. Over the past century, the increase in human understanding of the natural world has accelerated tremendously due to the invaluable contributions made by empirical statistical methods. Examples of settings where statisticians play key roles are quality control and reliability within business, industry and healthcare; sample survey work, opinion polls and marketing research; and actuarial science, among many others.
