Why to study

A Bachelor of Science degree is available in Mathematics, as well as joint BSc degrees in Mathematics and Physics, Economics and Mathematics, Chemistry and Mathematics, and Computer Science and Mathematics.

In addition, there is a minor in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics. A graduate degree (MSc—Mathematics) is also supported by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Northern British Columbia. Students interested in graduate studies are advised to consult the UNBC Graduate Calendar for further information.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers Mathematics and Statistics service courses to students in the biological sciences, health sciences, management, economics, social sciences, and other areas.

Some sections of introductory calculus are enhanced through the use of computer software which provides exceptional computational power and high-quality graphical display.  Introductory statistics courses teach the use of statistical analysis software to analyze data.

An important feature of the Mathematics degree program is the early emphasis on the development of abstract reasoning and the relation of the abstract to the concrete. The degree requirements have been chosen so as to provide students with a broad background in Mathematics while still leaving them room to pursue individual interests.
