Statistician

Qualifications

The majority of statistician jobs require a master's degree in statistics, mathematics, or survey methodology. Research and academic jobs generally require a PhD. Your undergraduate degree can be in statistics or mathematics, but be sure to take advantage of the various areas of concentration that your university offers, such as applied math, computer science, economics and life sciences. Statisticians do need to be well-rounded and not just nose-in-book eggheads.
