  • statistics
  • linear algebra
  • differential equations
  • numerical methods
  • number theory
  • topology
  • complex analysis

Majors

Focus your studies and choose from one of four majors:

  • Pure Mathematics
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Statistics
  • Studies in Mathematics and Statistics

A major allows you to gain detailed skills and a strong understanding of key principles in your chosen speciality.
