What will I learn?

Mathematicians seek out patterns, construct rigorous arguments, articulate assumptions, appreciate the value of a precise definition, analyze mathematical models, and create beautiful structures. Statisticians produce trustworthy data, extract meaning and draw practical conclusions from data, test conjectures, provide mathematical evidence, and critique the reasoning of others. In both cases, these skills have a surprising ability to help make sense of the physical, biological, artistic, psychological, economic, social, and philosophical worlds. As a consequence, quantitative expertise is in high demand on the job market. Moreover, rankings of occupations invariably list multiple careers in mathematics and statistics among the very best.

Medial in Mathematics or Statistics

A dual course of study in Mathematics or Statistics and any other Arts discipline.

Minor in Mathematics or Statistics

A minor is a less intensive course of study in the discipline that must be combined with a major in another discipline.

Undergraduate Course Highlights

Mathematics and Statistics courses are taught to students throughout the university, not just in Arts and Science. Popular upper-level courses include Computational Data Analysis, Evolutionary Game Theory, Group Theory, Life Contingencies, and Modeling Techniques in Biology, Real Analysis, and an Introduction to Coding Theory.

Job and Career Opportunities

The Mathematics and Statistics department at Queen’s is multi-faceted. It has several areas of study with ties to Applied Science, Arts & Science, Apple Math, and notable Mathematics and Engineering. Modern communications, control, electrical, mechanical and mechatronic systems require sophisticated mathematical models and analysis. This unique engineering program meets this challenge - the versatile graduates are not only qualified to pursue careers in engineering, but they possess the mathematical skills and insights needed to succeed in the ever changing workplace.
