Mathematics & Statistics

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 for Commerce

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.

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.


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.
