Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts / Faculty of Science / Faculty of Management
Field of Study:Mathematics, General
Description:The major program involves the same subjects as the honours program, but is less demanding in terms of abstraction. It is designed primarily for students who will need mathematical tools in their work, but whose creative activity will involve applications of mathematics to other areas. Within the framework of the mathematics major, various combinations of courses are suggested to meet the needs of different students. These include course suggestions for secondary school teachers; careers in management; and careers in industry, government, or actuarial sciences.

Mathematics offers many vocational possibilities. Such fields as teaching, computing, applied statistics and actuarial science offer opportunities for Bachelor of Science graduates. Opportunities to do original research in pure and applied mathematics are available in universities and research institutions. Employment is to be found in financially- or technologically-oriented business firms. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics through its various programs attempts to provide courses to suit the diverse interests within mathematics and statistics. Students may enrol in the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science stream.
