Pathways in Mathematical Statistics

Statistics major

A major in mathematical statistics consists of 24 credit points (four units) of senior statistics units.

The following program is highly recommended for those students aiming at a major in mathematical statistics. Optional extra units are available in second and third year from the applied mathematics program and the pure mathematics program, and students are encouraged to consider taking some of these units in addition to the core program.

The arrows in the diagrams below indicate approximately the assumed knowledge for each unit.

Advanced level (See below for Mainstream)

Optional additional units may be chosen from the applied mathematics program or the pure mathematics program (provided the prerequisites are met).
