After earning a bachelor’s degree, many students are interested in taking the next step in their education. A master’s is a postgraduate program that typically takes one to three years to complete. Coursework is more focused on an aspect of a career field, allowing individuals to specialize within their profession.

What is a Master in Statistics? The focus of this degree typically provides a deep and wide theoretical understanding of statistics, but with an emphasis on practical applications. The ways that mathematical sciences can be applied in today’s society are diverse, and new fields continue to develop. Students in this type of program may study data collection methods, risk computations, environmental and spatial statistics, algorithmic applications and mathematical theories and methodologies.

Individuals with an advanced degree are equipped with the knowledge and experience to succeed in a number of career fields within the international job market. They may also enroll in a Ph.D. program, which opens the door to a profession in education and research.

The cost of a master’s degree varies greatly due to the wide range of programs available. Some institutions require research projects, theses or internships that affect the length of the course. The location of the university also influences expenses. Fees, tuition schedules and enrollment costs differ.

The professions that require statisticians are too numerous to list because of the widespread need for this skill, but fields include medical, insurance, financial, political and industrial, to name a few. Graduates may assist companies with technical decision-making processes, provide statistical knowledge for corporate operations or evaluate potential fraud cases. Banks, market research firms and pharmaceutical companies actively recruit statisticians, and many students are hired in professional positions before graduating.

Universities around the world offer statistics master’s degrees, and they are often made available online for those who are unable to relocate or adjust daily routines to allow for full-time classroom attendance.
