## Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Supplementary Minor Concentration Statistics(18 Credits)

**Offered by:**Mathematics and Statistics

**Degree:**Bachelor of Arts

### Program Requirement:

Students may complete this program with a minimum of 18 credits or a maximum of 20 credits.

Taken together with the B.A.; Major Concentration in Statistics, this program constitutes an equivalent of the B.Sc.; Major in Statistics program offered by the Faculty of Science. It provides training in statistics, with a mathematical core and basic training in computing. With satisfactory performance in an appropriate selection of courses, these two programs can lead to the accreditation "A.Stat" from the Statistical Society of Canada, which is regarded as the entry level requirement for a statistician practicing in Canada.

This supplementary minor concentration is open only to students registered in the B.A.; Major Concentration in Statistics. Taken together, these two programs constitute a program equivalent to the B.Sc.; Major in Statistics offered by the Faculty of Science. No course overlap between the B.A.; Major Concentration in Statistics and the B.A.; Supplementary Minor Concentration in Statistics is permitted.

Note that according to the Faculty of Arts Multi-Track System degree requirements, option C, students registered in the B.A.; Supplementary Minor Concentration in Statistics must also complete another minor concentration in a discipline other than Mathematics and Statistics. For more information about the Multi-Track System options, please refer to Faculty of Arts regulations under "Faculty Degree Requirements," "About Program Requirements," and "Departmental Programs."

### Guidelines for Course Selection

Students are strongly advised to complete all required courses and all Part I and Part II complementary courses

by the end of U2, except for MATH 423.

Where appropriate, Honours courses may be substituted for equivalent courses. Students planning to pursue graduate studies are encouraged to make such substitutions, and to take MATH 556 and MATH 557 as complementary courses.

### Required Courses (6 credits)

* If MATH 423 has been taken as part of the B.A.; Major Concentration in Statistics, another 3-credit

complementary course from Part II must be taken.

### Complementary Courses (12-14 credits)

Part I: 3 credits selected from **:

** Students who have sufficient knowledge in programming are encouraged to take COMP 250.

Part II: 3 credits selected from:

*** Students can take either MATH 317 or COMP 350, but not both.

Part III: 6-8 credits selected from:

+ Students can take at most one of MATH 410, MATH 420, MATH 527D1/D2 and WCOM 314.
