Obtain knowledge on the practical applications in many areas such as physical and life sciences, finance and economics, computing and information theory, social sciences, and even fine arts. Gain an understanding of math as the science of patterns, which have evolved from roots in simple arithmetic to a complex language.
  • Our majors participate in seminars and do independent study and honors research projects with faculty members. There are scholarships specifically designated for mathematics majors. The department also employs students as tutors in the Math Centre and for summer research projects. Annual events include the prestigious International Putnam Exam, and the regional finals of the BC Secondary School Math Contest hosted by our faculty and students.
