Summary

Specialise in Statistics for your Diploma in Arts at Massey

Statistics provides tools vital for the collecting, analysing and presenting of data. Statistics is much more than the organisation and display of data. Careful analysis of underlying questions and critical examination of the sources of data are part of the art of statistics. Modelling the variability in data to calculate the reliability of answers is part of its science.

Statisticians use computers extensively to do calculations, draw graphics and bring new insights. With increasing use of technology, people with data handling skills have become highly sought after in the workplace. More and more professions, from the every day to the exotic, depend on data and numerical reasoning.

A Diploma in Arts in Statistics is a good fit if you:

like working with numbers or data

are confident with modern information technology.
