Master of Science
The Department of Mathematics at UBC is one of the very strongest mathematics departments in Canada. Our international reputation for excellence is not only well-established, but also rising during this exciting expansion period of our research and training programs.
Research interests in the department cover a strikingly broad array of areas, with our recent department review citing an excellent balance of pure and applied mathematics. The areas include Algebraic Geometry, Algebraic Topology, Asymptotic Analysis, Combinatorics, Differential Geometry, Dynamical Systems, Fluid Mechanics, Geometric Topology, Graph Theory, Harmonic Analysis, Industrial Applied Mathematics, Information Theory, Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Finance, Mathematical Modelling, Mathematical Physics, Number Theory, Numerical Analysis, Optimization, Partial Differential Equations, and Probability Theory. Faculty, postdocs, visitors, grad students, and undergraduates all contribute to the vibrant research community in UBC math.
