SheldonCopper Posted October 30, 2017 Share Posted October 30, 2017 (edited) Hi all, I was away from academia for several years and now I want to go back to academia to study statistics in depth. My ultimate goal is to get a Ph.D. degree in statistics(in the United States, ideally). So I could either apply for Ph.D. directly or apply for Master's program and prepare myself for Ph.D. programs. And I found that many Canadian schools provide fundings for international masters students in math and statistics. Right now, I am considering Mcgill, Toronto, UBC, Waterloo. My questions are 1. Are these schools generous in fundings? Or do they only subsidize partial amount of tuition and living expenses? 2. Are these programs well recognized among top Ph.D. programs in the United States or other English speaking countries? 3. Would these programs beneficial in future Ph.D. work? (I have heard many statistics MS programs are terminal and based on the course requirement, I honestly can't really tell if it is terminal or not) 4. If these programs are not beneficial, should I go for masters in mathematics? Thanks! Edited October 30, 2017 by SheldonCopper Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
