Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) Degree in Social Statistics


The degree program produces graduates who are knowledgeable and skilful in the theoretical and applied use of Statistics in the contexts of Social Sciences. In this degree program Statistics is offered as the core subject with other required numerical, computing, analytical and transferable skills. Further undergraduates are educated and trained to formulate and process professional information to make productive decisions. As a result of that, they may develop the capacity to find solutions for social problems and issues from a scientific approach. Ultimately, the graduates in Social Statistics may enter a wide range of jobs in the labour market representing both public and private sector based on their academic qualifications and other skills.
