Flexible programs

Our department offers undergraduate majors and honours programs in mathematics and statistics that can be obtained through the Faculty of Science of the Faculty of Arts.

Our courses cover a wide range of pure, applied and interdisciplinary topics designed to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

A BSc and a BA degree provide you with preparation for work in a variety of quantitative fields or graduate study in mathematics, statistics or related disciplines.

We offer opportunities to obtain interdisciplinary Mathematics and Statistics double majors or minors in: biology, economics, physics or engineering.

We also offer concentrations in actuarial science and computational mathematics for students majoring in other areas.

Diverse courses

You don’t have to be a math or stat major to take advantage of what our department has to offer!

There are math courses to complement your other degrees, in science, engineering or computer science. Contact us for more information. 

Research opportunities

Several of our exceptional undergraduates work closely with faculty during the summer months, supported partially by competitive Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada undergraduate research fellowships. This program provides an excellent ongoing opportunity for students to study advanced topics and learn about research with one-on-one mentorship.
