After your degree
Mathematics is a language that answers real-world questions in science and engineering. Statistics is the science of information. Studying them together gives you a set of tools which will allow you to explore the meaning behind the numbers in a range of practical applications.
This program is designed for students who wish to enter the job market right after graduation. As a Mathematics and Statistics student, you’ll uncover the mathematical structure of random systems such as the economy and the stock market, health and survival, and weather forecasting. You will build a solid foundation in linear algebra, calculus, probability and number theory, and learn to use professional software tools for mathematics and data analysis applications.
If you choose the Joint Major in Computer Science – Mathematics and Statistics, you’ll complement your mathematics knowledge with computer science topics such as modelling and symbolic computation. It’s also common for Mathematics and Statistics students to add a minor in a different field of their choice.
After you graduate with a Major in Mathematics and Statistics, you will have the knowledge and skills required to apply mathematics and statistics in professional careers in business, industry or government agencies.
A Bachelor of Arts or Science degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
About the Major
The Major in Mathematics & Statistics is a 42-credit program with a common core of 36 credits. It is aimed at students who would like to have a good background in the mathematical sciences, but whose goals are to enter the job market upon graduation, rather than to pursue graduate studies. The focus of the Major is on the applicable nature of the mathematical sciences as tools for solving, and as ways of thinking about, a wide range of problems. Certain selected topics will be covered in each course accompanied by the use of appropriate software applications.
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
We consider complete applications year round and give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines.
March 1 is the deadline to apply for fall term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by February 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Late applications will be considered if places are still available. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
November 1 is the deadline to apply for winter term entry. International students are encouraged to apply by September 1 to allow sufficient time for CAQ and study permit application processing.
Not all programs are available for winter term entry. Please check program availability for the term, before you start your application.
We reserve the right to close admission to a program at any time after the official deadline without prior notice.
Quebec residents who enroll in this program and meet the eligibility criteria may apply for funding of $2,500 per term through the Quebec Perspective Bursary (Bourse Perspective Quebec).
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
Mathematics and Statistics alumni have established careers in areas such as:
If you want to learn how to predict the future, consider actuarial mathematics. Actuaries use their mathematical and statistical wizardry to solve problems involving risk and uncertainty.
Department of Mathematics & Statistics
Faculty of Arts & Science
Model the future, solve problems involving risk, and make financial decisions that will affect the futures of corporations, communities and investors. This combined program offers you a direct path to an actuarial career with a financial sector specialization.
If you’re a problem solver, have great math skills and a keen interest in financial markets, Mathematical and Computational Finance is the field where these skills and interests intersect.
