Bachelor of Science (BSc) majoring in Statistics from 2019

From 2019 you’ll have more options available to you within a BSc Statistics major.

Your BSc programme will consist of a number of courses worth 15 points each, totalling 360 points. From 2019 you can choose to keep your Statistics major general, or you can follow either the Applied Statistics or the Statistics and Probability pathway, as a way to focus your studies further. You can also choose to do a double major, which means you study two Science subjects at the same time.

For your general Statistics major you must complete the following courses plus the Statistics capstone course, STATS 399 Statistics in Action, in your final year of study. In the capstone course you’ll integrate your statistical knowledge and collaborate with other students to solve a statistical problem.
