Undergraduate Alumni

Since the inception of Statistics as a major in 1979, over 650 students have graduated with a bachelor's degree in Statistics.  These alumni have gone on to utilize what they have learned as undergraduates in a variety of different ways.  Many have elected to continue their education in graduate programs or professional schools, but our alumni have also found success entering the workforce directly after graduation.

Graduates have careers in data and policy analysis in government, financial management, quality control, the insurance and health care industry, actuarial work, engineering, public health, biological research, and education.  Alumni are prepared for a variety of opportunities after graduation not only because of the rigor and breadth of their coursework, but the many opportunities to participate in research and internships as an undergraduate. 

If you are a current alumni, we strongly encourage you to stay connected to our department.  You can keep connected by joining our LinkedIn Group and completing our alumni survey.   We greatly value the wisdom our alumni have to share with our current undergraduates and so we hold several alumni career panels throughout the year.  If you would like to participate in a career panel please e-mail the Undergraduate Program Coordinator at stat-undergrad@ucdavis.edu
