After STAT 2000…

You have completed STAT 2000 and have discovered that statistics is interesting and useful. You now want to take further courses in statistics, or possibly become a statistician! So, what courses should you take? Here are some options for your next course:

If you are interested in entering an honours or major program in statistics, then you should take STAT 2400 (Introduction to Probability I), if you have not already done so. This course introduces the basic concepts of probability and provides a solid foundation for further courses in mathematical statistics. Applications of probability in many areas are provided, including forensic science, games of chance, genetics, reliability and statistical inference. The prerequisites for STAT 2400 are a grade of C or better in STAT 1000 and in one of MATH 1700 or MATH 1690. STAT 2400 is a required course in any honours or major program in statistics. More details are provided on the reverse. STAT 2400 will be taught in slot 2 in Winter session; it will also be offered in Summer session.

Without taking STAT 2400, you can also take a number of applied statistics courses: STAT 3120 (Topics in Regression Analysis), STAT 3130 (Statistical Analysis of Designed Experiments), STAT 3170 (Statistical Quality Control) and STAT 3380 (An Introduction to Nonparametric Statistics). The only requirement to take these courses is a grade of C or better in STAT 2000.
