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. Explore your options, and when you are ready, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The main goal of this learning module is to discuss phase transitions and critical phenomena in statistical physics. We introduce the ideas of mean-field theory and renormalization group and exploit them to calculate the critical exponents for the Ising model. More advanced topics concern the models with continuous symmetry, topological phase transitions, as well as Monte Carlo simulations. -

Students and instructors alike will benefit from this rigorous, unfussy text, which keeps a clear focus on the basic probabilistic concepts required for an understanding of financial market models, including independence and conditioning. Assuming only some calculus and linear algebra, the text develops key results of measure and integration, which are applied to probability spaces and random variables, culminating in central limit theory. -
