Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Mathematics (BSc)


Mathematics is a dynamic, evolving subject with many fascinating applications. Mathematics is often used to solve problems from the sciences, the arts and business – once put within the framework of mathematics, real-world problems can be solved in an efficient and reliable manner.

As a math student, you’ll study why modern production methods would not be possible without the theory of probability and statistics, first developed in analyzing astronomical and census data. This is just one example why Mathematics has been, and will continue to be, of vital importance to the world we live in.

Our Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Mathematics emphasizes the role of mathematics and statistics in the natural and computer sciences. We also offer a program specifically in Financial Math, in addition to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Mathematics. You can combine our Mathematics program with many other disciplines, including biology, chemistry and computer science.
