The University of Minnesota, Morris statistics discipline regularly incorporates academic research as part of a well rounded undergraduate experience at Morris. While on campus, statistics majors have the opportunity to participate in:

Many students participate in established research opportunities that are offered both on campus and off campus, through local and national agencies.

Every statistics major also participates in a senior seminar that integrates the student's statistical knowledge into a single year-long project and presentation. Over the course of the year, students will meet regularly with their adviser to create a project focused on applied statistics or statistical theory. But the project also allows student to demonstrate skills in writing, critical thinking, and public speaking.
