Students have the option of a four-year Honours program or a three-year General program. Mathematics can be pursued on its own as a single-major subject leading to a B.Sc., or it may be studied in conjunction with another subject in a joint-major program leading to a B.Sc. or a B.A.

In the first year of studies, Trent students are offered core courses in calculus and linear algebra, as well as an introduction to probability. Upper-year courses cover a variety of areas such as linear and abstract algebra, analysis, computer-oriented mathematics, differential equations, discrete mathematics, the history of mathematics, mathematical logic, measure and integration, topology, mathematical and applied statistics, time series analysis and stochastic processes.

Trent University offers a variety of exciting undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and related disciplines, including:

  • single-major Honours B.Sc. in Mathematics
  • joint-major Honours B.Sc. in Mathematics
  • single-major General B.Sc. in Mathematics
  • joint-major General B.Sc. in Mathematics
  • minor in Mathematics
  • specialization in Mathematical Finance
  • specialization in Statistics (not currently offered*)
  • single-major Honours B.Sc. in Mathematical Computer Science (discontinued*)
  • A 2+2 articulation program with Tianjin University of Commence of China brings their international students to Trent for an unique educational experience.

*Students currently enrolled can finish their degree in each program.

For students who are interested in more than one subject, the following joint degree programs are provided:

  • Mathematical Economics B.Sc. degree
  • Mathematical Physics B.Sc. degree

Program Requirements

At the graduate level, faculty members supervise M.Sc. students through the Applied Modelling and Quantitative Methods (AMOD)program. In addition, a M.Sc. degree in Financial Analytics via a course-based stream in the AMOD program is available. Ph.D degrees are offered through the Trent-Queen’s collaboration graduate program.
