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. See below for program specific details.
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. See Statistics Program Charts and program information for further details
Co-op Programs in Statistics
The four-year Major and (Joint) Honours in Statistics have a Co-op option, where you can alternate study and work terms in your third and fourth years. See program information and the Science Co-op page for further details.
*Unfortunately, the Co-op option is currently unavailable for students in the Joint Honours in Statistics and Actuarial mathematics.
