What comes next?

Hey guys
I'm a math major at a small university in first semester of my third year. I plan on going into statistics if this math thing does go as planned, so I'm trying to get as many statistics classes as possible. This semester im taking intro to mathematical statistics, which I enjoy because it bridged a gap in understanding which my elementrary stats class left. Unfortunately this is the highest stats class my university offers. There are two other stats classes but they are lower level and I think more computational. What I'm trying to figure out is what I can look up in my remaining time to advance my understanding of statistics. Any suggest topics?

Do you know what career you want and what statistics it requires? Two students could be Mathematics majors, take all of the same Mathematics courses, and get identical grades in each course, but get jobs that use different types of math and/or have salaries far apart. I used Probability and Statistical Inference by Robert V. Hogg and Elliot A. Tanis.
