Statistics

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Studying statistics can give individuals the skills needed to collect, analyze, and interpret data in order to reach useful conclusions. This data can then be applied to social, industrial, or scientific problems, or organized for presentation to the public.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Best Part time Masters in Statistics in Sweden. With a Master's degree in Applied Statistics you will have the knowledge and the qualifications to assume a leading role in the design of statistical surveys and to contribute to the development of statistical analysis. Potential employers are banks and insurance companies, market research firms, as well as the industry sector, especially the pharmaceutical industry. The master program prepares students for careers as statisticians in both the private and the public sectors. Statistical methods are used all over the world and the students of the master program gain access to the international job market. The program gives the students training for a profession as a statistician. At the same time the program prepares the student for studies at the Ph.D. level. The training covers many areas of statistical theory and practice giving opportunities to work in different fields of application of statistical methodology, although a focus of the program is on applications within the economic and social sciences. The program is particularly well suited for students interested in a career in official statistics. It is the only Swedish master program and one of twelve in total that has been certified by Eurostat (the statistical office of the European Union) to offer a European Master in Official Statistics (EMOS). The program is made up of four semesters of courses. The program starts with a course in mathematics and a course in statistical theory. During the first year students will, in addition, take two...

Master's Programme in Mathematical Sciences

University of Gothenburg, Faculty of Science
Campus Part time 2 years September 2017 Sweden Gothenburg

The programme has the following specializations: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics. [+]

The use of mathematical and statistical models and methods have facilitated tremendous advances in knowledge during the last few centuries. Still, it may be today that the growth in ways of applying mathematical sciences is at its greatest, as ever-increasing data-collection and computing possibilities make new application ideas feasible. Examples of this include finding disease-related genes, cryptography for the internet, and risk computations for new financial instruments. At the same time, the strong tradition of pure research in mathematics is continuing, where the research goal is simply to follow the human need to explore, and to understand the logical consequences of axioms. The interplay between these two sides of our field make this a very exciting time to study mathematics. The Department of Mathematical Sciences has strong traditions in both pure and applied research. The fact that we are a joint department, part of both Chalmers Technical University and University of Gothenburg, gives us a size and contact surface that make many cooperations and specializations possible. We have research groups in algebraic geometry and number theory, biomathematics, complex analysis, computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, harmonic analysis and partial differential equations, kinetic theory, optimization, probability theory, wavelets, bioinformatics and statistical genetics, biostatistics, spatio-temporal stochastic models with environmental and marine applications, population dynamics, particle systems and statistical physics, extreme value theory, telecommunications, material fatigue and reability, environmental statistics, spatial statistics and image analysis, markov theory and algorithmic applications, and mathematical finance. As well as qualifying for graduate studies in mathematics and mathematical statistics,... [-]
