Statistics

Statistics is an academic discipline that collects necessary data for research purposes and provides theories and methods to analyze them and to make scientific judgments about the uncertain outcomes of interest.

Studying Statistics at the University of Regina

Statistical models and methods have applications in almost all industries and academic research disciplines that seek meaningful results from data. The rapid development and increased use of information and communication technologies produce a vast amount of data that can be used for many purposes. There has recently been a marked increase in social interest and demand for statistical specialists, such as statisticians or data scientists, who effectively analyze and utilize large amounts of data frequently occurring on daily basis. The undergraduate and graduate programs provide students with a strong facility in statistical methodology and applications.

Research

Our programs offer experiential learning in the classroom and lab. Undergraduates have the opportunity to do their own, independent research projects, learning alongside graduate students and experienced faculty, while our graduate students can build their skills working closely with supervisors who will guide and support their growth as researchers.
