Program Requirements
The Minor Concentration Statistics is offered only in a nonexpandable version, that is, one that cannot be expanded into the Major Concentration Mathematics.
The Minor Concentration Statistics may be taken in conjunction with a major concentration in some other discipline under option A of the Multitrack System, or together with the Major Concentration Mathematics and a minor concentration (which must be in some other discipline than Mathematics) under option C.
Under option C, it is not possible to combine the Minor Concentration Statistics and the Minor Concentration Mathematics. Students wishing to do this should instead take the Major Concentration Mathematics under option B (two major concentrations) and select a large number of statistics complementaries.
For more information about the Multitrack System options please refer to the Faculty of Arts regulations under "Faculty Degree Requirements", "About Program Requirements", and "Departmental Programs".
No overlap is permitted with other programs.
