In close cooperation with the Chair of Statistics and Data Analytics, the Teaching Unit for Computational Statistics and Mathematics offers a wide range of courses in the fields of statistics and econometrics. In addition to basic methods of descriptive and inferential statistics, the main focus is on multivariate estimation and testing – especially in the context of regression analysis.
The core competence relevant for research and practice lies in the fact that methodological understanding is closely interlinked with the corresponding skills for the computer-aided implementation of statistical methods. Students are enabled to implement and interpret statistical procedures empirically and to evaluate corresponding analyses.
- There are no certificate exams (Scheinklausuren) offered in the field of statistics.
- Students of Cultural Studies should contact the Professorship for Methods of Empirical Social Research (Prof. Dr. Heinrich) if they have any questions regarding classes in statistics or methodology (including the recognition of academic achievements at international faculties).
- The courses "Computational Statistics - Regression in R" and "Computational Statistics - Statistical Learning in R" are open to students from other Master's programmes. After successfully passing the exam, they will receive a certificate of their acquired knowledge.
