Major

Statistics

Bachelor of Mathematics

Apply the tools of modern statistics to inform data-driven decision making and solve real-world problems.

In this major, you will learn and apply statistical techniques to analyse and interpret complex data, and transform it into meaningful insights.

Examples include improving medical treatments through data-driven experimental design, or using meteorological and spatial data to assess drought conditions in local communities.

You will combine theory with practical experiences that challenge your thinking, expand your analytical capabilities and develop your technical skills.

Statisticians and data analysts are in high demand across business, industry, research and government, where they forecast, analyse and solve a variety of complex issues.

You may choose to combine your major with a minor in bioinformatics, computational science, computer science or physics.
