The Council for Higher Education in Israel instructed Bar-Ilan University to freeze its statistics program for the 2012-2013 school year, a university spokesman confirmed Monday.
The instruction came after an international accrediting committee found shortcomings in the Statistics Department, including a lack of lecturers and learning material that is not up-to-date.
Bar-Ilan is the only university in Israel where students were able to earn a degree in Statistics and Mathematics, as opposed to studying statistics as part of a social sciences program.
