Statistics

Why study this program?

The Statistics Honors program allows you to choose from an extensive selection of courses on subjects ranging from the experimental, such as sampling techniques and statistical inference, to the theoretical, such as probability theory and stochastic processes. Graduates from this program can apply to become an Associate Statistician.

Statistics can also be taken as part of a BSc with Major.


Why study a Bachelor of Science with Honors?

The Bachelor of Science with Honors is a degree program designed for students to reach in-depth training in a specific subject area and are drawn to scientific research. A research thesis project is embedded in each program and students must maintain higher academic standards than those in a BSc Major degree. Students have the option to add a minor from the Faculty of Arts, Native Studies, Business or Agricultural, Life & Environmental Sciences, however doing so will reduce the amount of option courses. A double major is not available in the Honors program.

*NOTE: Some program combinations are not possible.
