Statistics Supplementary Minor Concentration (Faculty of Arts)


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 modelling, multivariate analysis, and survival analysis.    

When taken with the Statistics Major Concentration, the Supplementary Minor Concentration constitutes an equivalent to the B.Sc Major in Statistics program. The combination of the two programs can lead to the “A.Stat” accreditation from the Statistical Society of Canada, which is regarded as the entry level requirement for a statistician practicing in Canada.


The program 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:  

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