Statistics is a challenging academic discipline, but the rewards of earning a statistics degree are well worth the effort.
Statistics provides the reasoning and the methods for producing and understanding data; it is the science of learning from data. It includes designing experiments or sampling surveys for the collection of data, collecting the information, evaluating it, drawing conclusions and presenting the results. Statisticians work with people from a variety of professional backgrounds to solve practical problems. The demand for statisticians is rapidly growing in a very diverse area of fields.
