Ever since the Department of Mathematics was established in the college in the year 1952, Statistics has been one of the complementary courses to B.Sc. Maths Programme. When the Department of Psychology was established in 1981, Statistics became one of the complementary subjects to B.Sc. Psychology as well.
Statistics is the art of treating numerical data derived from groups of individuals such as people, animals, or any objects. It helps in classifying, summarising and analysing data related to various phenomena. The knowledge of data analysis using statistical tools and computers also form part of the study of Statistics. These phenomena often seems to confuse things for most people because of its enormity. Hence these phenomena are depicted as charts, tables, graphs, diagrams etc. to make it more cognisible. Theoretical aspects of both Maths and Psychology could be put into practice at the applicational level through the study of Statistics.
