This course-based degree allows students to build on their undergraduate training to develop advanced skills under the guidance of award-winning, research-active faculty. You may study pure mathematics such as combinatorics, discrete mathematics, geometry, logic, number theory and cryptography, analysis, mathematical physics, probability and statistics. Or you may study applied mathematics and statistics, including industrial mathematics and operations research, with potential overlap with biology and medicine, medical imaging, oil and gas, software application development, finance and geoscience; biomedical and industrial statistics, actuarial science, environmental risk and big data analysis. Students have access to events hosted by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.
Mathematics Courses: Topics may include measure and integration, analysis, algebraic geometry, number theory, scientific modelling and more.
Seminars: In addition to required courses, students register in a research seminar in either actuarial science,mathematics, or statistics (depending on student's specialization).
Statistics Courses: Topics may include probability, estimation, hypothesis testing and more.
Project: All students will complete resulting in a written report.
