Statistics is the science of information that lets you discover patterns behind data. As a statistician, your understanding of probability theory lets you make decisions in the face of uncertainty. Statisticians also conduct surveys, analyze data, devise new methods of analysis and give advice on the statistical results of experiments such as clinical trials. Though it’s impossible to predict the future with 100 per cent accuracy, studying statistics will teach you creative problem solving, abstract thinking and analytical skills.
When you study statistics, you learn to uncover the mathematical structure of random systems such as the economy, health and survival, the weather, and the stock market. You will also receive a solid foundation in linear algebra, calculus, probability and computational methods and learn to use professional software tools for mathematics and data analysis applications.
An undergraduate degree in statistics prepares students for graduate work in statistics or in a professional career in business, industry, medical research or government agencies.
A Bachelor of Arts or Science degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
*Admission is to the Specialization. Students in the specialization program seeking admission to the honours program may apply to the departmental honours advisor – normally following the completion of 30 credits.
The Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks. As a Co-op student, you will work for firms where you may:
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
We consider complete applications year round and give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines.
March 1 is the deadline to apply for fall term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by February 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Late applications will be considered if places are still available. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
November 1 is the deadline to apply for winter term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by September 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Not all programs are available for winter term entry. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
We reserve the right to close admission to a program at any time after the official deadline without prior notice.
Statistics alumni have established careers in areas such as:
If you want to learn how to predict the future, consider actuarial mathematics. Actuaries use their mathematical and statistical wizardry to solve problems involving risk and uncertainty.

Mathematics is a universal language that explains the currents of the ocean, string theory, the spiral of a snail’s shell or the growth of a fern.
Mathematics is a language that answers real-world questions in science and engineering. Statistics is the science of information.
