Within the subject of statistics, we work with the methods that are used to collect, process, analyse, and present data. Data that is used as a basis for big and small decisions within many different fields.

We are faced with descriptions of reality in numbers on a daily basis. Media often report on different types of studies that have been carried out among different groups of people in society. Based on these reports, economists try to explain what has been studied and also try to predict future events, like, for instance, the outcome of a political election. The subject of statistics is the science of the methods used to collect, process, analyse and present data.

At Linnaeus University, you can study statistics as part of several programmes or as single-subject courses, but not for a complete bachelors´ degree.. If you are interested in doing research as a doctoral student, that possibility is available too.
