Statistics is the science of collecting, analysing, presenting and interpreting data. The statistician today is a partner in most scientific and technologic endeavours. The Bachelor of Science programme in Statistics offered by the department concentrates on broad based, flexible educational pathways, emphasizing the theoretical, practical, or computational aspects of probability and statistics. The programme serves the needs of future statisticians in science, industry, business, and government, at the same time as providing the necessary background and stimulation for graduate study; it also offers excellent opportunities for double-majoring in Statistics and Mathematics or Computer Science. With the recent rise of Big Data, Data Science, and Analytics, the demand for this set of skills has increased substantially.
