Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Get an edge for any career
It's an understatement to say that high-level math and statistics are used in every field of science and social science. In a world suffering from an overload of data, it is the mathematicians who find relationships and patterns invisible to the naked eye.
A growing number of students are drawn to our subject, either for its intrinsic beauty, or to combine it with their studies in another discipline. In any case, Mathematics and Statistics at UVic gives undergraduate and graduate students an edge, whatever their future career. And for students interested in pursuing our subject, Mathematician was named the best job of 2014, and Statistician the third best job. Contact us for more information.
Each of our main research groups (pure, discrete, applied, and statistics) is among the top in the country. Some of our areas of expertise include dynamical systems, operator algebras, graph theory, mathematical modelling, and sampling. Learn more about our research.
