Major Overview
 Description
Statistics is the science concerned with developing and studying methods for collecting, analysing, interpreting and presenting data. It is becoming increasingly important as a core tool in many disciplines such as medicine, psychology, education, sociology, engineering and physics. Statistics is important in many aspects of society such as business, industry and government. It is a highly interdisciplinary field; research in statistics finds applications in virtually all scientific fields. This major will equip you with the mathematical tools and the foundational knowledge in statistics to pursue engaging careers in research, business, industry or teaching.
 Outcomes
Students are able to:
 apply appropriate techniques to the collection, visual presentation, analysis and interpretation of data from a wide range of sources
 model realworld phenomena involving unpredictable variation in the language of mathematics
 select appropriate mathematical/statistical models of data generating mechanisms
 use modern statistical computing packages for statistical analysis and simulation.
 Broadening guidelines
 All students studying towards a Bachelor's Degree at UWA are required to Broaden their studies by completing a minimum of four units (24 points) of study outside their degree specific major. Broadening is your opportunity to explore other areas of interest, investigate new disciplines and knowledge paradigms and to shape your degree to suit your own aspirations and interests. Many of you will be able to undertake more than this minimum amount of broadening study and we encourage you to do so and to pursue as many areas of interest as you can during your course of study. At the same time, we know that many of you value the University's guidance and assistance in planning your enrolment throughout your course, so we offer the following suggestions for your consideration as possible avenues to broaden your degree. Do always remember, however, that there is no wrong way to broaden your studies as long as you complete at least four units not associated with your Degree Specific Major.
Suggested units to broaden your study area, are:
(1) CITS1401 Computational Thinking with Python
(2) MATH1013 Mathematical Analysis
(3) MATH1014 Algebra
(4) MATH2030 Metric Spaces & Measure Theory  Incompatibilities
MJDMTHST Mathematics and Statistics
