    Course Summary

    Statistics is a specialism within mathematics, with very close ties to data and computer science. Statisticians develop and apply ways to collect, organise and analyse data, or use that data to make predictions about real world events. Some statisticians work alone on the theoretical or procedural levels, but many others work in close association with thinkers and scientists in disciplines touching upon nature, physics, medicine and psychology, among many others. 

    The University of Manitoba’s Statistics BSc programs will give you the tools you need to build an academic or business career, but you’ll also learn the critical thinking and analysis skills you’ll need to succeed in nearly any other field. 

    This degree program can be taken as a 4 year Major Degree, a 4 year Honours Degree, a 4 year Joint Honours including a Computer Science, Mathematics, Economics or Actuarial Science component, or with an additional year in Honours or Major Co-op.
