Overview of Statistics

Statistics is motivated by the need to extract information from data, to quantify uncertainty, and to make predictions about random phenomena. To do this effectively, sophisticated mathematical and probabilistic techniques and computational tools are needed. Core areas of expertise include Bayesian inference, biostatistics, computational statistics, high-dimensional data modeling, multivariate analysis, and survival analysis.


Major Statistics

To pursue this program, you MUST consult with the Math/Stats department and a BCom Advisor. Taking certain statistics courses in non-sequence order may overlap with others and you may not receive credits for all courses completed.
