Our graduates pursue careers as varied as family service worker, employment recruiter, technical writer and college admissions recruiter, or go on to attain advanced degrees in equally varied fields, such as behavioral medicine, criminal justice, nursing and human resource management.

A two-semester sequence of both statistics and research methods allows you to investigate their related concepts together, so you can gain hands-on experience in researching and then apply statistics to analyze what you find. Your senior project will give you the opportunity to showcase what you've learned through an internship, research project, presentation and more.
