Statistics

Pre- and co-requisites are designed to ensure that you have the appropriate preparation for your courses. They are strictly enforced. However, we consider exceptions for students who have taken an equivalent course at another university. Please note that previously taken courses that are exclusions to pre- or co-requisite courses are not always equivalent to required courses and may not be allowed.

If you have any questions regarding pre- or co-requisites, please send an email to ug.statistics@utstat.utoronto.ca.

For information on what courses to take in your first year, visit Enrolment Requirements & First-Year Courses.

Courses differ in their level of mathematical rigor – with STA257H1 and STA261H1 being the most rigorous. Taking courses with greater mathematical rigor will give you the greatest flexibility when choosing your upper-year courses. Please note that not all second-year statistics course choices are allowed for all statistics programs of study.

Have a look at the course recommendations and tips we gathered to help you navigate the process of selection your second-year statistics courses.

You can also visit the Faculty of Arts & Science calendar (select your program under "Statistical Sciences Programs") to learn which courses are required for your program.

Courses in the U of T Actuarial Science program are designed to help prepare students for a career as an actuary. However, ACT230H1 (Mathematics of Finance for Non-Actuaries) is a course that would be of interest to a wide audience.

This course covers basic financial topics that are of value to all students, since almost every student will from time to time be covered by insurance and pension plans.
