O que eu aprenderei?

Be a highly sought-after graduate

The quantitative skills that you’ll gain from a Massey BA (Statistics) can set you apart from other graduates when applying for jobs.

What is it Like?

A Massey BA (Statistics) will teach you to interpret the science of evidence. Statistics allow us to quantify risk and make effective decisions even when we are uncertain about the world around us. Should I buy or sell my stock? Is this new treatment effective against breast cancer? What adverts should my website display in order to increase my revenue? How can I better interpret that weak distress signal coming from a vessel far out at sea?

Seeking answers to questions like these from the recent explosion in digital data makes statisticians some of the most highly sought-after employees.

Learn the theory and its practical relevance

As a Massey BA (Statistics) student you will learn the key theories of statistics, but you will also get the quantitative skills to conduct robust statistical analysis that is effective in the real world.

Earn more

A Ministry of Education report conducted over nine years showed that science, technology, engineering and math’s graduates have high relative earnings compared to other graduates.

Massey is ranked in the world’s top 200 universities for statistics, by the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking.


Statistics skills are useful in most areas of government, business, industry, and the sciences. Jobs that require statistic expertise include:


Policy analysis, Census, law, national defence


Economics, engineering, marketing, computer science, data mining, business analytics

Physical sciences

Astronomy, chemistry, physics

Health and medicine

Genetics, clinical trials, epidemiology, pharmacology


Agriculture, ecology, forestry, animal populations


All students majoring in the Statistics are recommended to take a 100-level Statistics course, choosing from 161.120 and 161.130. For this you would need a basic background in Mathematics (eg Year 12/NCEA Level 2 Mathematics).

The more advanced statistics courses build on the basic concepts learned in the 100-level course. You will develop a wide variety of skills and techniques at the next level to enable you to competently undertake the more advanced courses.
