Statistics BSc (Hons)
The BSc (Hons) in Statistics allows you to specialise in the branch of mathematics that focuses on collecting, analysing and presenting large quantities of numerical data. There are many practical applications for statistics, including fields such as science and medicine, government, business and education.
Students of Statistics will acquire the analytical techniques, clear logical thinking and deductive reasoning necessary to explore some of these fascinating areas of research.
Statistics is studied up to Honours level in both the Faculty of Science (BSc) and the Faculty of Arts (MA). Students who have a background in the sciences or who wish to study Statistics alongside science subjects at St Andrews should apply for the BSc. For those interested in studying Statistics alongside arts subjects, the MA in Statistics may be of interest.
Students interested in this course may also be interested in the Statistics Integrated Masters course, which allows you to graduate with a Master of Mathematics.
