Minor Statistics (B. Sc.)

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) - Minor Statistics(24 Credits)

    Offered by:Mathematics and Statistics
    Degree:Bachelor of Science

Program Requirement:

The Minor may be taken in conjunction with any primary program in the Faculty of Science. Students should declare their intention to follow the Minor Statistics at the beginning of the penultimate year and must obtain approval for the selection of courses to fulfil the requirements for the Minor from the Departmental Chief Adviser (or delegate).

All courses counted towards the Minor must be passed with a grade of C or better. Generally, no more than 6 credits of overlap are permitted between the Minor and the primary program. However, with an approved choice of substantial courses, the overlap restriction may be relaxed to 9 credits for students whose primary program requires 60 credits or more, and to 12 credits when the primary program requires 72 credits or more.
