Undergraduate Programs

Four-year honours program

This is an intensive, systematic program of study in statistics. It is the best preparation for post-graduate study and leads to entry level positions as statisticians.

To enter the Honours program students must have a "B" or better in STAT 2150. See Statistics Program Charts and program information for further details.

Joint honours programs

These programs offer intensive studies not only in statistics but also in other related fields. Currently, the Department offers joint honours programs with actuarial science, economics and mathematics and computer science.

Four-year major program

This program gives a more flexible but less intensive exposure to the subject of statistics. Graduates would be able to enter the workforce in junior positions.

To enter the four year Major program in Statistics, students must have a "C+" or better in STAT 2150.

Accreditation of courses

The Statistical Society of Canada has accredited most of the 3000-level and 4000-level statistical courses as being available for partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Associate Statistician (A.Stat.) designation.
