Statistics and Actuarial Science | Faculty of Science Simon Fraser University Calendar | Fall 2019

Data Science Honours

Bachelor of Science

The Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science and its partners, the Department of Mathematics, the Beedie School of Business, and the School of Computing Science, offer an honours program in Data Science (DATA) leading to a bachelor of science (BSc) with honours degree. This is a highly structured program providing a multidisciplinary approach to quantitative methods for business and industry in an environment of rapid changes in technology. The honours program offers specialization in one of 3 concentrations: Mathematics, Statistics, or Open Concentration.

The program is managed by a steering committee consisting of representatives from the above-mentioned departments, and faculty serve as liaisons between participating departments and the program director.

Students formally apply to be admitted into the program. Applications can be considered both for students entering Simon Fraser University, and for students already enrolled. Admission into the program is decided on a competitive basis. Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) in DATA program course work to remain in the program and to graduate. It is strongly recommended that students contact the science advisor or program director early about admission and scheduling.

Students who wish to combine the DATA honours program with another major or minor program should consult with the Data Science director.

More information can be found on our website: http://www.sfu.ca/datascience.

Program Requirements

Under University regulations, an honours degree requires the completion of a minimum of 120 units, including a minimum of 60 upper division units. Honours program students require a graduation cumulative grade point average of not less than 3.00.

Mathematics Concentration Requirements

Lower Division Requirements

Students complete a minimum of 62 units.

Examines complex, real-world decision making issues using an evidence-based approach that employs decision making strategies involving statistics, data management, analytics, and decision theory. Through a major decision making project within the community, students will experience first-hand the process of consultation, data acquisition, analysis, and recommendation. The data in the project will be proprietary to the community partners and students thus need to sign a non-disclosure agreement. A non-disclosure agreement template is attached to the course outline. The results of the project will remain the intellectual property of the students; notwithstanding, those results will be shared with the data provider. Students also have an option to complete a project with non-proprietary data.
