The Department provides a range of educational opportunities. Undergraduate students wishing to specialize in Statistics or combine a Statistics degree with another discipline are well-served by a variety of programs. Undergraduate and MSc Statistics students wishing to combine their university education with work experience can enroll in co-operative education program. At the graduate level, the Department offers an MSc in Statistics, an MSc in Statistics with concentration in Biostatistics, and a PhD program.
Students not specializing in Statistics are welcome in all of our courses, provided there is space and prerequisites are met. Indeed, almost all of our courses—at both the graduate and undergraduate level—have large enrollments of students from other disciplines.
In collaboration with the Department of Computer Science, we also offer a professional MSc degree in Data Science, which is administered separately. See the Master of Data Science website for more information. In addition, we teach a core course in the Bioinformatics program, Statistical Methods for High Dimensional Biology (cross-listed as STAT 540, BIOF 540, GSAT 540).
