About

In the Mathematics program offered by University of British Columbia, mathematicians use theoretical and computational methods to solve a wide range of problems from the most abstract to the very applied. 

Overview

UBC has one of the largest and most vigorous departments of mathematics in Canada. Our faculty routinely win national and international awards for their research and teaching achievements. 

We have an engaged and sociable cohort of graduate students who are essential members of a broad selection of active research groups. Each group holds a variety of seminars and events that allow graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, visitors and faculty to enjoy regular interaction.

Career options:

Many of the Mathematics MSc graduates from University of British Columbia go on to doctoral studies in mathematics and related fields, at UBC and other universities in Canada and other top departments around the world. However, a significant fraction of students move into careers in industry. Students considering non-academic careers are encouraged to complete an industrial internship (for instance through the Mitacs Accelerate program - headquartered at UBC) during their studies.
