Bachelor Statistics


Statistics is much more than what we see in the media every day. It helps us distinguish chance from system, draw conclusions about aggregates from samples, identify causal relationships and behavioral equations, and find needles in haystacks. In our data-driven world, statistics is becoming increasingly important in business, science, and everyday life, from planning clinical trials to forecasting growth rates. Does any of this sound exciting to you? Then a degree in statistics is the perfect choice!
