Department of Statistics

Welcome to the Department of Statistics

The Macquarie University Statistics Department is Australia’s largest statistics department.

We offer a full range of statistical subjects, from introductory statistics, suitable for all Macquarie University students, through to Masters level courses, for those who wish to become professional applied statisticians.

We teach courses useful to those needing to apply Statistics to many fields, including medicine, the social sciences, biology and finance.

Statistics can be a study in itself with MAJORS in Statistics and Decision Sciences which may be taken in B.Com, BSc and BA degrees.

Our department is active in both theoretical and applied research and we supervise a large number of PhD students, from Australia and abroad.
