The following courses are offered on a regular basis.

Each winter semester there are: Descriptive Statistics, Estimating and Testing, Probability Theory, Programming with R I, Vector and Matrix Calculus, Computational Statistics, Survey Techniques, Introduction to Data Science I, Scientific Working, Statistical Theory, Lecture from the area of Stochastic Processes.

In each summer semester there are: Probability, Descriptive Multivariate Statistics, Nonparametrics and Robust Statistics, Optimality in Estimators and Tests, Decision Theory, Programming with R II, R for Data Scientists, Introduction to Data Science II, Introduction to Statistical Learning, Sampling Techniques, Principles of Design of Experiments, Advanced Design of Experiments, Time Series Analysis, Econometrics, Advanced Statistical Learning, lectures from the area of Modeling.

In both the summer and winter semesters, there are: Case Studies I, Case Studies II or Case Studies, seminars, and various lectures from the elective areas of the degree programs.

Statistical programming courses (e.g. SAS, SPSS, Julia, Python) are usually offered as compact courses shortly before the beginning of the semester or shortly after the end of the semester. They are usually announced through notices.

Course catalogs of past semesters can also be found in the LSF (selection at the top right on the link of the current semester). Furthermore you can find pdf-short overviews of winter 2020/21 and summer 2020.

Preparatory courses for the Master's programs

Before classes begin, check out our pre-courses that will help you prepare for your upcoming Master's and brush up on all the important content from your Bachelor's courses. There will be 3 different pre-courses:

The first one is a statistics pre-course in German language, which mainly covers the most important content of the statistics bachelor. It is a three-week course that will take place in presence on campus. It is recommended if you are preparing for the statistics master.

The second and third pre-courses are e-learning courses in English on the moodle learning platform. They do not have a fixed schedule. Therefore, you can do them where and when you want. One of them is an online statistics course that has essentially the same content as the face-to-face pre-course. It is recommended for both the Data Science and Econometrics master's programs. The other is a Data Science course that is highly recommended for all Data Science students.
