UBC’s Department of Statistics (at UBC’s Faculty of Science) enjoys an international reputation for the quality of its faculty and research. If you have an instinctive appreciation for how numbers reveal a story, or a fascination for the role of chance, that is, of uncertainty in the world, then Statistics could well be your field! There is a flexible range of programs to suit your interests, all of which will develop your critical statistical reasoning, and your computational, mathematical, and communication skills.
In addition to the Major in Statistics, there are several programs of combined majors, including Economics and Statistics, Mathematics and Statistics, Mathematical Sciences, and Computer Science and Statistics. You may also be able to complete a degree in statistics with a minor in another area, such as Economics or Commerce.
Statistics and Economics as a combined major is available either as a Bachelor of Arts program or as Bachelor of Science program, depending whether the specific degree requirements fit better with your interests in arts or sciences.
