Abstract: 

This article describes the need to reexamine the undergraduate discipline of statistics in light of society's needs. Traditionally, there has been too much focus on the mathematical aspects of the discipline. The article suggests courses that would meet important needs of the undergraduate statistics major and set the discipline of statistics apart from mathematics.
