Statistics (Faculty of Science)


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

The BSc. Statistics Minor program provides you with fundamental knowledge of statistical models, methods, and procedures, and trains you to collect, analyze and interpret data. These skills can complement knowledge acquired from other disciplines.


The Statistics Minor will provide you with skills in in calculating, analyzing, and presenting data and information. You can pursue career paths in the public and private sectors or pursue graduate studies in the field. 

You could become a professional:

  • Mathematician
  • Market Research Analyst
  • Financial Analyst
  • Operations Research Analyst
