Undergraduate Degree Program:

Through the five different undergraduate degree programs offered by the Division of statistics, students are provided with the flexibility and experience necessary to meet their individual academic goals.  The Honours in Statistics Program (4 years) provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of both theoretical and applied statistics and will enable students to move easily into challenging employment or graduate work in statistics. The Combined Honours Program (4 years) allows students to study Statistics and another scientific discipline at an advanced level. The Advanced Major in Statistics Program (4 years) provides a broad coverage of the discipline but is slightly less demanding than the Honours programs. The Advanced Double Major Program (4 years) allows specialization in two subjects at a slightly less intense level than does the Combined Honours Program. The Major in statistics Program (3 years) provides a student with a basic background in statistics.

Graduate Degree Program:

The statistics division offers both the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. Faculty research interests include robust statistics, data analysis, multivariate analysis, linear and nonlinear regression, graphical methods and statistical computing, time series analysis, statistical inference, and information theory. Faculty are also engaged in a number of applied projects, which currently include applications to chemistry, medicine, oceanography, physiology and population genetics. Graduate students take part in one or more applied projects through their participation in the activities of the statistical consulting service.
