Overview

Bachelor of Science in Statistics

If you have a mind for science and you’re keen to keep your options open, then the BSc is the degree for you. With many undergraduate majors in a wide range of subject areas, the BSc will allow you to incorporate different areas of interest and expertise. 

As well as strongly emphasising transferable skills to improve your employment opportunities, this programme will expose you to cutting-edge technologies and provide a gateway to independent research. 

Throughout your undergraduate degree you’ll be taught by knowledgeable scientists, many of whom are major contributors in their field.

The Bachelor of Science majoring in Statistics

We live in an information age. Computers allow us to collect and store information in quantities that previously would never have been dreamt of. However, data is useless until people can start to make sense of it. If you’re interested in looking critically at numerical information without being misled, then Statistics could be the ideal major for you.

Statistics is the human side of the computer revolution – statisticians take raw undigested data, often in very large sets, and make sense of it to solve problems and provide valid information in almost every area of life. As a Statistics student you’ll study how to ask the right questions, how to design ways to collect and analyse data, and how to present information in meaningful ways.

You can take courses in the following topics:

  • Applied statistics
  • Data analysis
  • Operations research
  • Probability
  • Statistical computing
  • Statistical theory

From 2019, you can also choose to keep your Statistics major general, or you can follow either the Applied Statistics pathway or the Statistics and Probability pathway, in order to focus your studies further:

  • Applied Statistics: For students who are primarily interested in the practice of statistics.
  • Statistics and Probability: For students who are interested in both the applications of statistics and the theory underlying the practice of statistics and probability, including stochastic modelling. If you’re intending to progress to postgraduate study you should take this pathway.
