Undergraduate Programs

A degree in statistics will enable you to work in a variety of disciplines. The goals of the undergraduate program in Statistics at Rice University are to acquaint students with the role played in the modern world by probabilistic and statistical ideas and methods, to provide instruction in the theory and application of techniques that have been found to be commonly useful and to train research workers in statistics.

Our programs are flexible and may be oriented towards theoretical or applied training or towards joint work in a related department, including but not limited to biology, economics, education, electrical engineering, computational and applied mathematics, psychology, and more.
