​​​www.utstat.toronto.edu

Statistical Sciences involves the study of random phenomena and encompasses a broad range of scientific, industrial, and social processes. As data become ubiquitous and easier to acquire, particularly on a massive scale, models for data are becoming increasingly complex. The past several decades have witnessed a vast impact of statistical methods on virtually every branch of knowledge and empirical investigation.

​There are also opportunities for study and research in the fields of (a) Statistical Theory and Applications and (b) Probability, leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees, and (c) Actuarial Science and Mathematical Finance, leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Please visit the website for further details about the fields offered, the research being conducted, and the course offerings.

​The department has substantial computing facilities available and operates a statistical consulting service for t​he University’s research community. Programs of study may involve association with other departments such as Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Public Health Sciences, and the Rotman School of Management. The department maintains an active seminar series and strongly encourages g​raduate student participation.

MSc and PhD students have supervisors that are chosen for them. They have the option to change supervisors one year later if they choose to do so.
