Applied Statistics is a key discipline in the information society. It deals with collecting, analysing and integrating data. To this end, methods and instruments are developed by which large and unsorted masses of data from various sources can be translated responsibly and objectively into information and knowledge. As an interdisciplinary subject, Applied Statistics combines mathematical-statistical knowledge with elements from computer science and various fields of application. The focus in Göttingen here is on the field of statistical modelling. At a solid mathematical level, this course imparts methodical knowledge while simultaneously keeping the application in mind. Part of the degree consists in a practical statistical course. Students are required to select a field of application in which they attend in-depth classes.
