Students in the M.Sc. program can choose a concentration in Statistics or in Mathematics.
The Statistics concentration provides students with a solid training in advanced statistical analysis, computational methods and applications to stochastic models such as statistical inference theory and Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms with extensive and computationally intensive simulation studies. We are currently working on having our M.Sc. graduates certified as Statisticians by the Statistical Society of Canada.
The Mathematics concentration aims at providing students with advanced training in such areas as algebra and number theory, computer algebra algorithms, dynamical systems, partial differential equations and symmetry analysis, functional analysis, solitons and integrable systems, topology, mathematical music theory, mathematics education, and - as a bridge with the Statistics Concentration - probability theory and stochastic processes.
The normal duration of the M.Sc. program is 24 months. However, completion in 12 months is possible in the Statistics concentration. Part-time option is also possible - please contact us if you are interested in part-time studies.
Special Features of the Program
Among the strengths of our program the following ones are especially worth mentioning:
Another way in which Brock differs from other Universities in Southern Ontario is that we offer a part-time option for those who have the credentials and the desire for graduate training in Mathematics and Statistics but whose work and/or family responsibilities prevent them from taking up their studies on a full time basis.
