I think you mat be confusing the class with the module.
When you write:
you're importing the module.
If the module is called "Univariate" and the class within the module is
called "Univariate" then you should either write:
x = Univariate.Univariate(a) # the class Univariate in the module
from Univariate import Univariate
x = Univariate(a)
Incidentally, it's recommended that module names use lowercase, so that
x = univariate.Univariate(a)
from univariate import Univariate
