Course Title: STATISTICS

Course Description

Statistics is a course aimed at studying scientifically the process of collecting data, organizing it, carrying out analysis/interpretation, and lastly presenting it in a form that'll be easily understood by everyone. Everyone in one way or the other have utilized statistical concepts in analyzing and presenting their data, even without studying the course. That is because it is just something that's just inevitable, no matter how we try.

But on the bigger picture, Statisticians are big shots in the society today. They are highly respected probably because of the fat salaries they receive at the end of the month, or the uniqueness of the course.

Do you love calculations so much, and you're searching for a course which'll allow you unleash your potentials? Then Statistics could be a course for you. But before you jump into it, why not read through, so you'll gain all the knowledge you need concerning the course.

To acquire a degree in Statistics, you'll need to take some classes on these courses (we just listed out the major courses, you'll encounter others when you sign up as a student)

  1. Applied time series analysis.
  2. Calculus.
  3. Experimental design and analysis of variance.
  4. Probability theory.
  5. Regression analysis.
  6. Sample survey theory.
  7. Statistical computing
