This program provides you with a solid grounding in the mathematical sciences. While maintaining a strong core in mathematics, the program allows you to emphasize mathematics, statistics, computer science, or any combination of the three. Computer mathematics and statistics systems are extensively integrated throughout the program. As a graduate of this program, you will be prepared for further study in the mathematical sciences, or to enter into a career in business, education, government, industry, or financial institutions.
You have the option of completing directed studies, where you will undertake a supervised investigation of an assigned topic, culminating in a project and oral presentation. The Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences holds an annual undergraduate research conference on UBC’s Okanagan campus to showcase student research projects.
