Online courses come in many different shapes and sizes. Some last a full academic semester and are stand-alone classes, and some are made up of several different classes where a student is able to earn a certification or degree. Most courses are taught by an expert in the field.
What is an online course in statistics? Statistics is a mathematical science used in data analysis. It involves the collection, analysis and interpretation of data. Students are introduced to two main branches: descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Subjects may include biostatistics, matrix algebra, modeling, logistic regression or meta-analysis. Statistical analysis can be applied to many areas including economics, psychology, marketing, environmental studies and education.
Many transferable skills are obtained through statistics courses. Students learn to analyze problems. They learn time management and organizational skills. They learn to be patient and persistent. These lessons, patience, organization and the ability to work through complex problems, are relevant to everyday life.
The cost of an online course in statistics depends on school and duration of the course. Check with your school’s admissions office for more detailed information on rates and fees.
Statistics can be a rewarding and exciting career choice. Forensics, environmental studies and government are just a few practice areas that might be available. Forensic statisticians evaluate forensic data using advanced statistical methods to compare probabilities of evidence. Environmental statisticians analyze and interpret environmental data in order help design environmental studies. This field is usually highly interdisciplinary. Government statisticians work across a variety of departments contributing to areas such as research or unemployment figures.
Statistics is used in a wide variety of careers worldwide. In turn, there are many schools across the world that offer online courses in statistics.
