Department history

The Department of Statistics was formed at UNL in 2003, after a merger of the Department of Biometry and the statistics division of the Department of Math and Statistics. The Department is uniquely positioned in two academic colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Membership in both units allows us to develop research collaborations and consulting relationships in agriculture while working closely with faculty and staff in the biological and social sciences.

The Department offers a M.S. and Ph.D in Statistics, graduate level minors and joint programs in Statistics, and an undergraduate minor in Statistics. Since the Department was founded in 2003, we've seen students enjoy successful careers in academia, research, and private industry both in Nebraska and around the world!
