The Faculty of Science is committed to providing its students with a quality education emphasizing personal attention, choice and flexibility. In the Bachelor of Science program, students can expect opportunities for practical, hands-on experience across a spectrum of science disciplines in the classroom, in the lab, and in the field. In addition, there are opportunities for students to work with nationally and internationally recognized professor-researchers in their research laboratories.
The BSc is a rigorous program that provides students with both depth and breadth in their science education. Communication skills and computer literacy are promoted. Flexibility in the program allows students to pursue interests in disciplines outside their area of specialization.
Build yourself a super degree by combining the power of game theory, financial tools and research.
A mathematics and economics major teaches you to use, mathematics, economic tools and research data to make sense of the world. By analysing trends and patterns and building mathematical models, you can make forecasts and recommendations to help organizations improve their operations in ways that will benefit them financially and maybe bring benefits to humanity more broadly.
Economics allows you to turn theory into something real. You get to shape the future by putting questions like “What if?” and “Why not?” through cost-benefit analyses to arrive at real options that organizations can choose from.
If you enjoy math or have strong math skills, you may be particularly well suited to the study of the math and economics major. This specialization involves the analysis and interpretation of variables and data that relate to individual organizations and the regional, national and global economy.
You could find yourself in government, health care, law, natural resources, green industries, financial institutions, information and technology, product development, non-profits, think tanks, fitness and leisure, wellness, entertainment, education, agriculture, fashion, database analysts and data administrators — and more.
