Level: Bachelor of Mathematics - Pure Mathematics
Length: 8 semestersCheck My Eligibility
Study the power, elegance, “how,” and “why” of math. In this rigorous program, you'll cover the spectrum of mathematics — from classical to modern — including geometry, number theory, and logic. Because Pure Mathematics classes are among the smallest and most cohesive in the Faculty of Mathematics, you’ll get to know both your classmates and your profs. (Profs who are doing ground-breaking research when they’re not in the classroom.) You'll also get the opportunity to get paid work experience through co-op. Pure Mathematics will provide you with problem-solving skills that can be applied in industry, business, government, or graduate school.
