Statistics Master's

Sample 1st Paragraph for the Master's Degree in Statistics


My fascination with Statistics came with the realization that the applications are almost limitless. The expert application of statistical techniques has the potential to beneficially affect almost every aspect of people’s lives and I seek to become an expert practitioner, researcher and teacher in this field of study. I find that the mix of highly technical and the ‘soft, artistic’ skills of intuition and subtle interpretation that are required of an expert in the field make the subject an excellent fit for me. I now seek to acquire the high-level skills and knowledge to enable me to achieve my goals and to maximize my utility in the world.
