The departments of Computer Science and Statistics offer a joint Honours program for in-depth study in both Computer Science and Statistics.

To enter the Joint Honours Computer Science-Statistics Program, the student must have a “B” or better in COMP 1020 and in STAT 2150 and a DGPA of 3.00. Note that MATH 12201, MATH 12301 and MATH 12321 and MATH 1240 are not required to enter the program, however, it is recommended that they be completed in Year 1 as they are prerequisites to Year 2 courses.

To continue in the Joint Honours Computer Science - Statistics Program, students must maintain a DGPA of 3.00.

To graduate with the Honours degree a student must present a minimum grade of “C” in each course that contributes to the degree. In addition, the student must achieve a minimum DGPA of 3.00.

Both departments must approve a student’s Honours program each session. Students must also obtain approval from both departments for any and all revisions to the program.
