Pathway in Statistics

The BSc (Hons) Mathematics degree is a balanced programme of study that covers topics across the whole range of mathematical disciplines. Our course is built on five themes which run through all academic years of the course; mathematical methods, analysis, algebra, mechanics and computational mathematics. A variety of innovative teaching and assessment methods challenge the students to apply their mathematical skills to real-world problems.

As well as an honours project, the latter years of the programme have a number of specialist optional modules that will enable students to focus their degree towards their personal interests.

The programme develops communication skills, such as delivering oral presentations and designing conference-style posters. The complete programme provides students with a basis to springboard into further study or employment.

STATISTICS PATHWAY
According to the American Statistical Association, Statistics is the science of learning from data, and of measuring, controlling, and communicating uncertainty. Statisticians apply statistical thinking and methods to a wide variety of scientific, social, and business endeavours in such areas as astronomy, biology, education, economics, engineering, genetics, marketing, medicine, psychology, public health and sports, among many. The Statistics Pathway provides students with sufficient in-depth knowledge in statistical methods to enable them to embark on further study in statistics or apply that knowledge in industry.
