In this rigorous and forward-thinking department, students gain the knowledge and broad analytical skills they need to compete and succeed in today’s digital, information-driven world. Our growing department is home to faculty-scholars who are deeply committed to student success.
“Our students value the sense of community we have here—they meet others who think like them and are enthusiastic about the same things.” — Karen Buro, associate professor
Women in math and statistics
About half of our faculty are women, says associate professor Elaine Beltaos, a ratio that is similar to the gender split during her graduate studies. “I personally don’t find there’s a difference in interest for young women entering math and science.”
We offer senior-level courses that allow you to explore specialized content or emerging issues in greater depth. The topics change each year and reflect the particular expertise of our faculty members.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
