Best Statistics colleges in the U.S.

Statisticians develop studies and analyze data sets to understand probabilities for anything from homicides to finance. They can be employed at the federal level for agencies like the CDC or in the medical or insurance sectors. 

Students interested in becoming statisticians often pair a Bachelor of Science in Statistics with a master’s or PhD with a specialization like biostatistics or toxicology, though some students apply for full-time roles immediately after graduation. 

Students can earn their degree in statistics in-person or online, though many graduate-level programs require in-person lab time and research with senior faculty. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that opportunities in this field can vary depending on the sector, though job projections show a 33 percent increase in positions over the next decade.
