Variety and broad application —that is math. Mathematics underlies both the most everyday of our experiences and the most extraordinary. Think anywhere from traffic jams to disease control or space travel. Propel human thinking into uncharted territory with the study of quantity, structure, change and space!

Building on the strong foundations of logical reasoning, conceptual thinking and practical skills of problem-solving, mathematics at York open the path to a number of specializations and a multitude of expected and unexpected careers.

Take your pick among these inspiring program options:

Actuarial Science

Focus on one of two areas: Actuarial Science or Operations Research. Actuaries model risk in designing insurance policies, pension plans and similar programs. You will be prepared to write the actuarial certification exams. In Operations Research, the scientific study of optimal systems management, you’ll learn how to use mathematical models to maximize the efficiency of business operations.

Applied Mathematics

Express ideas using the language of abstraction and reasoning: Mathematics uses basic concepts as the foundation for practical applications. This program appeals to students fond of pure math — join a community dedicated to the precise analysis and interpretation of our world. Learn why the Wall Street Journal has consistently ranked mathematician as one of the best jobs.

Computational Mathematics

Computational Mathematics combines core studies in mathematics and computer science. Choose one of two areas of concentration: Applied & Industrial Mathematics or Financial Mathematics. Applied & Industrial Mathematics involves modern and traditional applications of math to science, engineering and medical research. Financial Mathematics is geared to the needs of the financial and banking sectors.

Mathematical Biology

Experience the intersection of math and the life sciences, as well as the role it plays in our everyday concerns, by representing biological processes using a variety of mathematical tools and techniques.

Mathematics / Mathématiques

We offer a selection of pure and applied math courses in both English and French. Not only will our small classes ensure that you receive personalized attention through the various stages of the learning process but we also have a drop-in Math Lab, where teaching assistants can offer their expertise.

Mathematics for Education

Mathematics for Education is designed for students considering a career in teaching. Students can be enrolled in York’s Concurrent Education program or choose to take a Consecutive Education program. This program offers a broad background in mathematics and encourages you to develop a wide perspective on the teaching and learning of the subject.

Statistics

You’ll learn the foundations of mathematical statistics with application to areas such as mining data for information and measuring uncertainty in experiments and surveys. Our students are recruited by major consulting firms and government agencies.
