Master programme in Statistics

The Master Programme in Statistics at Uppsala University gives a solid foundation in statistical theory and a deeper knowledge in areas such as econometrics, psychometrics and biostatistics. This gives very good skills to critically analyze and interpret data from various application areas. Students with a degree from this programme are well prepared for work in both the private and public sectors or for graduate studies in Statistics.
