The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Lethbridge offers a number of highly diverse and exciting programs, each of them carrying their own unique characteristics.
Computer Science is the study of algorithms and data structures, and their applications in designing new and efficient solutions to industrial, technological, environmental, or social problems.
As a Computer Science student, you will learn to tackle difficult problems using a variety of high-tech tools and approaches. You’ll also learn to effectively communicate your expertise to others by coupling your technical learning with a solid grounding in Liberal Education.
The program is designed to enable you to gain both theoretical knowledge and practical experience, including access to state-of-the-art hardware and software in our three computer labs whenever you need to use them.
Computer Science and Geographical Information Science This multidisciplinary major is offered jointly by the Departments of Geography and Mathematics & Computer Science. It combines the technical and practical methodologies of GIS with the systems analysis and design skills from Computer Science to provide a strong foundation in this growing field. See the GIS brochure or speak to an Academic Advisor for more information.
Mathematics is the study of structure and patterns in numbers and shapes. It is an active research area, providing a language, theories, and models to solve complex problems across a wide variety of scientific, industrial, and economic sectors.
Over the past century, discoveries in pure mathematics have found unexpected applications in science, industry, and finance, such as secure internet transactions, Google, DNA sequencing, and the stock market.
As a Math student, you will study both pure and applied mathematics—giving you the opportunity to see real-world applications of your theoretical studies.
The program offers courses in four main areas: algebra, analysis, number theory and geometry, as well as statistics. Many students opt to combine math with courses in Physics, Computer Science, Chemistry, Economics, Management, or other areas of interest.
A mathematics education provides a solid training that is sought after by employers and allows flexibility in your career choices. You will learn to tackle difficult problems employing a variety of theories and statistical models. You’ll also learn to communicate your expertise by combining your technical skills with a sound Liberal Education.
You will have access to state-of-the-art science and research facilities. These facilities provide the infrastructure to support the research interests of our award-winning faculty—your instructors. You’ll also have access to the latest equipment in our computer labs and small class sizes ensure access is available whenever you need it.
The knowledge and experience you gain from the program will provide an exceptional stepping stone into a career in Mathematics, whether you choose to pursue a Master’s or Doctorate degree, or enter the working world.
