Overview

Statistics is one of the most important fields of study in the world. The techniques we use to model and manipulate data guide the political, financial and social decisions that shape our modern society. If you are a logical person and enjoy solving problems, statistics at Essex is for you.

Our Department of Mathematical Sciences embraces pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics, and operational research, and our course offers you the opportunity to study statistics alongside other mathematical subjects.

Providing a balance of solid statistical theory and practical application, this course builds your knowledge in all areas of statistics, data analysis and probability. You also have the opportunity to specialise, taking optional modules in topics including:

- Survey methodology
- Operations research
- Applied mathematics
- Computer science

Our interdisciplinary research recognises that mathematics, including what can be very abstract mathematics, is an essential part of research in many other disciplines.

Our department has an international reputation in many areas including semi-group theory, optimisation, probability, applied statistics, bioinformatics and mathematical biology.
