STAT491 Dissertation

A single-semester paper representing half of STAT 490 (normally taken by approved students in the second semester and again in the first semester of the following year).

All you need to get started is approval for your topic and a staff member who is willing to supervise you. If you have no clear topic in mind, ask staff members for suggestions; it is useful to make enquiries towards the end of your 300-level year. The range of potential topics is very broad: the main criterion is that there must be sufficient statistical content at an appropriate level and that you produce a coherent report.
