Study with us
Is math your first language? If so, you will likely appreciate the clean reasoning and analytical tools that drive progress throughout the sciences and engineering. From concrete applications to the abstract, Applied Mathematics will help you identify patterns, formulate conjectures, establish theories and model and analyze real-world phenomena.
Participate in a broad spectrum of research
Research areas in the Department of Mathematics include:
- Approximation theory
- Combinators and graph theory
- Geometry and topology
- Mathematical biology
- Numerical analysis
See our full range of research opportunities in Mathematics.
Expand your scope with summer research
Students will have the opportunity to participate in summer research funded by the University of Manitoba and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Summer research fields include:
- Game theory
- Mathematical biology
- Code breaking
- Graph theory
Math Help Centre can assist
The Math Help Centre is a free service offered by the Department of Mathematics for first year students to get help with mathematics from someone who has "been there" — a graduate student.
The Faculty of Science offers multiple programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Science (Major) degree in Mathematics.
Bachelor of Science (Major)
Expected duration: 4 years, approximately (120 credit hours) of study with a minimum degree GPA of 2.00. To enter a Major program, you need to complete a minimum of 24 credit hours with specific course and grade requirements.
The Faculty of Science Major program provides students with extensive study in their chosen field while allowing for educational breadth through other subjects of interest. The Major program offers flexibility and opportunities to select electives from other disciplines at the University of Manitoba. This flexibility means that the Major program doesn’t provide the same level of professional training as the Honours program.
Students in a Major program are eligible to apply for Co-op, which provides exposure to the industry and valuable work experience. Students normally enter the program after second year including designated courses and grades.
To earn a Bachelor of Science Major degree a student must successfully complete 120 credit hours or more of study with minimum grades on all courses as specified in the Academic Calendar and a minimum degree GPA of 2.00. You can complete this program on a full-time or part-time basis.
Once you are eligible and fulfill the entrance requirements for the program, please complete the appropriate form on the Academic Advising page.
Sample course offerings
Here are some examples of the courses offered for this program:
- COMP 3190: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
- ECON 2030: Mathematical Economics
- MATH 1220: Linear Algebra
- MATH 1230: Differential Calculus
- MATH 1232: Integral Calculus
- MATH 2070: Graph Theory 1
- MATH 2080: Introduction to Analysis
- MATH 3610: Introduction to Mathematical Modelling
- STAT 3450: Linear Models
For a full list of courses and descriptions of each, please visit the Academic Calendar.
Earn while you learn — Co-operative Education
The Faculty of Science Co-operative Education program is an excellent way for students to enhance their classroom learning with on-the-job experience. Available in most Major and Honours programs, Co-operative education is a form of experiential learning that integrates academic education with relevant, supervised and paid work experience. Co-op students gain valuable skills to guide them through their academic education and prepare them for future careers after graduation. Students who enrol in the Co-operative Education program will complete their four-year (approx.) Major or Honours degree in five years (approx.), allowing them to complete three or four work terms. Each work term is completed within a four-month period beginning in January, May or September.
Learn more about the Science Co-operative Education program.
To declare the BSc Major in Applied Mathematics you first must be accepted into the Faculty of Science. The following are the minimum requirements for entry into the Faculty of Science.
Direct entry means you are applying to the program directly out of high school or have completed fewer than 24 credit hours at a recognized university or college.
Missing some requirements? Students who do not meet the direct entry admission requirements may apply to University 1 to prepare for entry into the Faculty of Science. You may be able to declare your specific Major when you transit or you can transit to the General degree. University 1 students who qualify may transit to the Faculty of Science using Aurora Student. See the Academic Calendar for entry requirements specific to this program.
Advanced entry Applicants are those who have completed one year (24 credit hours) or more of studies in another faculty at the University of Manitoba or another recognized post-secondary institution.
Note: When you apply to the Faculty of Science as a Direct or Advanced entry student, you do not select your Major areas of study (e.g., Biochemistry, Computer Science, Statistics, etc.). Each Major or Honours program has specific entry requirements and may be declared once you have completed a minimum of 24 credit hours of coursework, generally at the end of your first or second year of studies. For full details, please visit the Academic calendar.
How to apply
Domestic student application fee: $100
International student application fee: $120
Applications to the University of Manitoba are completed online. To begin your application, select the "Start or continue your application" button. The online application includes several parts, and you may be required to submit transcripts, proof of English Language proficiency and other documents.
If you are a University 1 student wishing to transit to the Faculty of Science, you are not required to submit an application. You may transit to the Faculty of Science student using Aurora Student. There is no application fee.
