## X. Degree Programs## Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)## Statistics (STAT)
The discipline of Statistics is essential in the social sciences, biological sciences, physical sciences, and health professions. The specialization in Statistics emphasizes applications of statistical theory and methods to other disciplines and is available in the B.A. Honours Program as a major or minor and as an area of concentration in the General Program. Students are encouraged to combine the study of statistics with another field. Statistical computing is a fundamental tool for the application of modern statistical methods. Students in these programs will develop skills in computer applications programming using such high-level languages as SAS and S-PLUS. ## Area of Concentration (General Program)A minimum of 5.00 credits in Statistics and Mathematics is required, including: -
no more than 1.00 credit from courses at the 1000 level -
3.00 credits in statistics (STAT), 2.00 of which must be from courses at the 3000 level or above
