University of Guelph 2003-2004 Undergraduate Calendar

X--Degree Programs, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

Statistics (STAT)

Department of Mathematics and Statistics, College of Physical and Engineering Science.

Students in this program will acquire the ability to use modern statistical methods in a variety of applications, the theoretical understanding necessary to develop statistical methods to meet new needs and a solid preparation for further study. As well, since statistical computing is a fundamental tool for the application and development of modern statistical methods, students will develop skills in computer applications programming using such high-level languages as SAS and S-PLUS.

Any student seeking admission into this specialization who does not have at least a 70% average in the mathematics courses of semesters one and two should consult with the Departmental Advisor. A total of 20.00 credits is required to complete the major which includes at least 10.00 credits in Statistics and Mathematics, 2.00 of which must be at the 4000 level. At least 1.00 credit in Arts and Social Science must be completed.
