If you want to pursue advanced studies in Mathematics or Statistics at M.Sc. level, you came to the right place! The MSc program at Brock University aims to provide students with an intensive advanced education in areas of Mathematics and Statistics in preparation for doctoral studies or the job market. Students can follow either the Mathematics stream or the Statistics stream. In research output, the Department is currently in the top three in its category among Ontario universities as ranked by Canadian University Publications.
We offer two specializations
- Statistics concentration: provides students with a solid training in advanced statistical analysis, computational methods and applications to stochastic models such as statistical inference theory and Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms with extensive and computationally intensive simulation studies. We are currently working on having our M.Sc. graduates certified as Statisticians by the Statistical Society of Canada.
- Mathematics concentration: aims at providing students with advanced training in such areas as algebra and number theory, computer algebra algorithms, dynamical systems, partial differential equations and symmetry analysis, functional analysis, solitons and integrable systems, topology, mathematical music theory, mathematics education, and - as a bridge with the Statistics Concentration - probability theory and stochastic processes.
