An advanced degree in mathematics allows you to tackle complex problems in an array of fast-evolving fields, including big data, corporate finance and intelligence analysis. With over thirty faculty members our department will help you develop close working relationships in the field of mathematical sciences. You will benefit from Concordia’s association with the ISM (Institut des sciences mathématiques) and the CRM (Centre de recherches mathématiques), allowing you to take courses at any of the four major universities in Montreal and to participate in collaborative projects during your studies. You will broaden your research network by participating in seminars and presentations given by leading professors, post-doctoral fellows and adjunct faculty members. By the end of the program, you will have advanced your research skills and will be ready to apply mathematical expertise to your chosen field of interest.
The department offers financial support to approximately 25-30 full-time M.Sc. and Ph.D. students per year. It also awards internal scholarships through organized competitions. Some scholarships and bursaries are also available through ISM.
In addition, the Faculty of Arts and Science supports graduate students by awarding one-year Masters fellowships ($7,000). Other awards available through the faculty include:
Concordia Merit Scholarship
Concordia University Graduate Fellowship
Harriet and Abe Gold Endowment
Hydro-Quebec Graduate Award
John W. O'Brien Graduate Fellowship
Clara Strozyk Scholarship
Out-of-Province Fee Remission Awards
Consideration for Entrance Awards is automatically part of the admissions process for all new students. We also encourage students seeking admission to our program to apply for funding from external sources in the final year of their undergraduate studies (e.g. NSERC, FRQNT).
The Department is part of the Institut des sciences mathématiques (ISM), a unique centre of excellence for graduate training in Mathematics, combining the resources and expertise of the mathematics departments at the four Montreal-area universities, as well as Université de Sherbrooke and Université Laval.
The Department is also associated with the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM), a NSERC National Research Centre whose mission is to provide leadership in the development of mathematical sciences in Canada.
To foster interdisciplinary research and cross-specialty collaborations, we maintain close ties with the Department of Computer Science, as well as other departments and universities. A wide range of research seminars and lectures are held regularly throughout the year, many of them being organized in conjunction with other Montreal universities, the ISM and the CRM.
