Statistics is about using data to describe, summarise and model the world around us. The Statistics major will develop your fundamental statistical knowledge and practical data analysis skills to design appropriate research studies and collect data.

You’ll study statistical methodology and understand how historical data generated by real-world systems can be used to forecast the future of these systems in industries like statistics, economics and finance, science, engineering and quantitative social sciences.

Statistical careers are many and varied because statistical methods are so widely applicable. You could go on to a position as a data analyst, market analyst, biometrician, epidemiologist or quantitative analyst.

Statistics is a 80 unit major, specific courses can be found in the program handbook.

The Statistics major within the Bachelor of Science is only available at our Newcastle (Callaghan) campus.
