Increasingly the world around us, and all academic disciplines, are becoming more and more reliant and dependent upon statistics. It is as H.G. Wells predicted nearly a century ago, "Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write." Certainly this day has arrived. Today the basic principles of statistical thought and reasoning are as necessary for the understanding of sporting events and the nightly news, as they are in conducting state of the art research.

Graduates with statistical training are employed in a broad spectrum of areas, which include the business world, the sciences (biological, social, physical, and health), as well as the fields of engineering and education. There are many job opportunities for statisticians at all levels.
