Outside the Classroom

Use statistics in the real world

The Mercer University Statistics program has incredible opportunities for you to strengthen your personal and professional life.

  • Tutoring — Statistics majors have the opportunity to work as tutors in the Academic Resource Center and tutor local high school students.
  • Research and inquiry — Statistics majors have the opportunity to do one-on-one research with professors to explore new ideas.
  • Service and internships — Mercer students have participated in outreach programs where they tutor in local high schools. Our students have also completed internships at insurance companies and software companies.
  • Study abroad – Students are encouraged to consider study abroad opportunities through Mercer On Mission.

Taking part in opportunities outside of the classroom enables you to discover how statistics and the world are intertwined. We firmly believe that your experience at Mercer will exceed your expectations when you allow yourself to learn outside the classroom walls.
