Graduate Degree Programs

Admission Requirements:

Candidates must satisfy the general requirements for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. For details on admission, fees, and general information see the
Graduate Calendar. Candidates will normally be expected to hold a degree recognized by Dalhousie University at the equivalent of a Bachelor's degree with Honours in one of its own faculties. GRE Aptitude and Advanced Mathematics scores are recommended for all applicants for graduate studies whose undergraduate work has been completed outside of Canada, and TOEFL scores are required for applicants whose native language is not English. Valid score reports must be received directly from the Educational Testing Service. To ensure consideration for scholarship funds, application should be made early.

Masters Degree Program:
At least three full-credit classes at the graduate level must be taken, chosen in consultation with the graduate advisor. Attendance is expected in the statistics seminar and, in addition, participation in the activities of the Statistical Consulting Service is required. A satisfactory thesis must be completed, and an oral presentation of the work must be given in a seminar.

Ph.D. Degree Program:
A comprehensive examination must be completed within one year of initial registration. Enrollment in at least two full-credit graduate classes, participation in a research seminar and, in addition, participation in the activities of the Statistical Consulting Service are required. Preparation and defense of a research thesis are required.
