NB: Our 29-credit, three-semester program is novel in that it requires students to have completed one introductory statistics course plus two calculus courses (differential and integral) during undergraduate studies; multivariate calculus is not required to gain admission, although some enrolling students have indeed covered the third calculus course. In the event that an enrolling student has not completed multivariate calculus, s/he will be required to participate in our informal calculus review non-credit course (which covers these new topics) during the first semester of study; this review does not count towards the 29-credit required program total.


Sequencing of Courses:

- Note that we do not currently offer graduate courses during the Summer semester

- Fall only courses are STAT403, STAT404, STAT408, and STAT411.

- Spring-only courses are STAT405, STAT407, STAT410, STAT436 and STAT437.

- As often as possible: STAT406, STAT421, STAT426, Bayesian Methods, Nonlinear Regression Methods, Nonparametric Methods, Sampling Methods, Longitudinal Data Analysis, Hierarchical Modelling, and other special topics classes.


Here is the typical sequence for students entering during the Fall semester:


First Fall Semester

Spring Semester

Second Fall Semester
