What you will learn in this program
General Mathematics scholars ask questions such as: How can mathematical theories be used to solve concrete problems? What computational techniques are used in market analysis? How can statistical data be used in city planning?
General Mathematics explores the various branches of mathematics and their applications in the real world. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur while actively working on problems in class and during tutorials. You’ll learn mathematics fundamentals and gain exposure to a variety of modern mathematical subjects such as mathematical analysis, abstract algebra, geometry, number theory, statistics and actuarial science.
As a mathematician, you’ll have global opportunities to work in areas such as financial investments, computer animation, investment advisors and more. The creative, exploratory and lateral thinking in problem solving you’ll develop in this degree will be applicable to a wide variety of career opportunities. A degree in General Mathematics can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or architecture.
Courses you'll take:
Advanced Introduction to Computer Science, Calculus for Engineers and Scientists, Introduction to Computer Science for Multidisciplinary Studies I, University Calculus I, Introductory Calculus
Admission requirements and information
Study abroad opportunities - Cultural and academic experiences at destinations around the world.
Arts and Science Honours Academy (ASHA) - A six-course interdisciplinary program with a second language aspect and travel components.
