On behalf of the Department of Statistics and Biostatistics here at CSU East Bay, I am writing this welcome message for any prospective student interested in a Statistics major, minor, or graduate degree. Our department is comprised of engaged faculty who strive for excellence in both teaching and research. Our programs are designed for a diverse student population with a diverse set of goals, whether it be to join the workforce or continue their education at the graduate level. We are excited to offer concentrations in Data Science in our newly redesigned undergraduate and graduate programs. I grew up in a small town in southern Maine and completed my undergraduate and Master’s degrees in that area. It was during that time, interacting with quality professors who possessed genuine care for their students, that I was led to take my first Statistics courses. My love for both Statistics and teaching stemmed from these positive experiences. I now wish to pay it forward to educate, guide, and mentor students who find their way into my classes and programs to set them on a path for lifelong success.
For Spring semester, 2019, the Department of Statistics and Biostatistics will administer the comprehensive exam on April 12th and 19th. If you intend to take the exam, please contact Dr. Chatterjee for a permission number to enroll in STAT 692.
Applications for the 2018-2019 scholarships are due on Monday, January 28, 2019.
