About the Department

"It's easy to lie with statistics. It's hard to tell the truth without it"
                                                                        - Andrejs Dunkels

Bethune College Department of Statistics was established in the year 2001. Initially undergraduate pass course was offered for the Economics, Mathematics and Physics honours students. Only very recently, from 2015-16 academic session the department started offering three year honours degree course in Statistics.

In recent times the subject Statistics is becoming more and more interdisciplinary in nature, that derive its strength and motivation from practical problems, which arise out of research in other fields of science. To keep pace with this modern trend our department is trying to contribute to the development of the subject by combining innovative teaching with various research activities.
