Mathematical Science Major

What is Mathematical Science?

Mathematical Science is the application of mathematics and statistics to understanding and solving problems faced in every field of science, arts and industry.

By combining your studies in mathematics and statistics with studies in a secondary subject, the Mathematical Science Major allows you to customize your degree to suit your interests and career goals.

This major is ideal for students who love mathematics and statistics and want to see how they are applied in real-world settings. Mathematicians and Statisticians are hired in a wide range of fields and industries and this major allows you to gain the technical training in mathematics and statistics while giving you practical literacy in a specific field.


Choose Your Degree

You can complete the Mathematical Science Major as part of two degree programs. The Mathematics and Statistics components of the degrees are the same, but there are different entrance requirements, and different options for the Area of Emphasis in a secondary subject.

  • Bachelor of Science
    Students typically choose to study for the Mathematical Science Major within the Bachelor of Science degree program if they are interested in continuing their studies in subjects such as Biology, Chemistry or Physics
  • Bachelor of Arts
    Students typically choose to study for the Mathematical Science Major within the Bachelor of Arts degree if they are interested in continuing their studies in subjects such as Economics, Computer Science, or any other field in the Arts or Social Sciences.
