This course allows you to develop a solid grounding in the main branches of mathematics, but with a strong emphasis on statistics. Mathematics is the language of science and is ever-present in all our lives. This course introduces you to core mathematics topics alongside studying statistics to an advanced level, while still giving you the flexibility to explore other areas that interest you. Statistics underpins a great deal of scientific research and analysis. Statisticians are qualified to collect, analyse and present data in a scientific and objective manner. The work of statisticians is used to ensure correct decisions are made. Statisticians are in demand in both the private and public sectors, in areas such as market research, the NHS, environmental science, forensic science and government statistics. This integrated Masters degree is ideal if you’re considering a career in academia. Graduates of this course also enjoy the same opportunities as those studying for a mathematics degree.
