# Statistics

**Degree awarded Bachelor of Statistics**

Mode of education 4 years regular study according to the state order.

**General characteristic**

The subject prepares statistic analytic specialists with skills for using the methods of the mathematical statistics matched with intensified mathematical preparation as well uses the potential of the newest information technologies. They will be able to decide various tasks that come down to analysis of different measure type of information or more accurate in analysis to data. The statistics is the science for getting knowledge from data. It is established in the solid advancing core by mathematical consents, to the chances in the area largely, and lately more and more as well in the computer sciences.

The curriculum is developed according to the european standards - region 462 “Statistics” by the classifier of the departments of the education of Unesco, by the traditions of FMI and the conditions to АSA and RSS authoritative statistical associations group of actuaries in Europe and BAS/Bulgarian Actuarial Society/, by legal code for insurance of Republic of Bulgaria. It ensures all - round preparation of the students in the ground directions of stochastic: theory of the probability, mathematical statistics, data analysis, multidimensional linear models, experiment planning, rows of data, stochastical process, simulations and actuarial applications, fiscal and insurance mathematics. Conditions on professionally dominating the contemporary statistically software are made on various practices. According to their preferences the students can choose courses according to the area of their future realization. The curriculum ensures extensive knowledges of the main mathematical disciplines, connected with stochastic: mathematical analysis, algebra and geometry, differential equations, complex analysis, operations research, numerical methods and programming.

By various practices and opportunity for training in enterprises, institutions, and science institutes and labs, the subject aims to approach at the most the students in their future employment.

Students who are bachelor graduated in Statistics can continue their education for obtaining master degree in all programs provided by the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics at the University of Sofia or by other Bulgarian and foreign universities. If not, they can start their carrier in the fields of Mathematical Economics, Banking Affair, Cognitive Science, etc.

**Final examination is the state final certification examination for obtaining a bachelor degree**.

**General abilities**

The specialists in statistics have theoretical knowledge in the stochastic sphere, in the theory of probability, accident processes and mathematical statistics, as well as practical abilities in data analysis and creating the probability models of research situations, processes and phenomena. They are able to make motivated prognosis by risk estimate and preparation of variants for considered decision.

Theoretical knowledge and abilities

- The specialists have fundamental knowledge in the main branches of Mathematics such as Algebra, Geometry, Differential and Integration Calculus, Differential Equations, Probability and Statistics, numerical methods, analytical mechanics and mathematical programming.
- The specialists have fundamental knowledge in applied branches such as Mathematical Introduction to Economics, Macroeconomics, and Applied Statistics.
- The specialists have fundamental knowledge in the main branches of Informatics such as Data structures and Algorithms, Discrete Mathematics and Object-oriented programming. They have skills for programming of a high level language.

**Practical abilities**

- They know to use their theoretical knowledge at solving practical problems, where it is competently using the stochastic model.
- hey can independently analyze, project and realize applied systems, base of stochastic approach in their construction.

**Additional abilities**

- They can independently search the needed information in literary references and internet.

**Access to further studies**

Students who are bachelor graduated in Statistics can continue their education for obtaining master degree in all programs provided by the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics at the University of Sofia or by other Bulgarian and foreign universities.

Students who are bachelor graduated in Statistics can start their carrier such as analytic specialists, mathematicians, statisticians or actuaries in banks, insurance companies, experts in the industry, the trade, agriculture, in the state administration, management, the statisticians in science institutes and teachers of higher schools.
