Mission

The Master Specialization Statistical Science provides students with a thorough introduction to the general philosophy and methodology of statistical modelling and data analysis, and focusses on application in the life sciences and the behavioural sciences.

The successful student will gain a thorough understanding of statistical models, their implementation and their interpretation, and develop the ability to invent new models and techniques when needed.

Graduates will thus qualify for jobs in a wide range of areas, such as academic medical hospitals, many types of industry (pharmaceutical, agricultural, food, life science in general, oil, etc.), research institutes, financial institutions, government statistics bureaus, educational services (CITO), marketing bureaus etc.

In view of the emphasis on statistics as a (mathematical) science, rather than as merely a collection of techniques, many graduates will qualify for PhD programs as well.
