Study Mathematics at the Mount

There are many different ways you can integrate Mathematics into your university education at the Mount. Check out the options below.

Contact the Team

Mount Saint Vincent University offers a limited enrollment internship option for students registered in either the 20.0 unit Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Students accepted into the internship program complete all required coursework for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, and, in addition, complete a 1.0 unit internship course, either BART 3399 or BSCI 3399.

The internship program allows students to formally integrate their academic program with professional work experience prior to graduating. All students accepted into the internship program will complete one paid internship with a government department, agency, non-profit, or corporate business.

By gaining professional work experience through the internship program, students will have an opportunity to determine career goals; gain practical knowledge and experience; develop confidence, maturity, and human relations skills; apply academic lessons to practical working situations; generate employment contacts; and provide financial assistance to meet educational expenses.

Participation in the internship program is at the discretion of individual departments and programs. 


Major in Mathematics

A student may obtain either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Mathematics.Students intending to complete the major degree must declare their intention to do so before registering for their sixth unit of coursework. Students who do not make this declaration within this time frame will not be permitted to register for further coursework.A Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics requires a 3.0 unit arts minor.  A Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics requires a 3.0 unit science minor.

Combined Major

The combined major degree is intended for those students who wish to gain in-depth knowledge of two disciplines. Students must declare a major or combined major before registering for their sixth unit of coursework. Students who do not make this declaration within this time frame will not be permitted to register for further coursework. Students must successfully complete 20.0 units.

The Mount also offers a limited enrollment internship option.

Major Certificate

Students who have graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University with a Bachelor of Arts (General Studies) degree or a Bachelor of Science (General Studies) degree may apply to do a major certificate.

To obtain a minor in Mathematics, students must fulfill the following requirements:
 ❏ MATH 1113 and 1114
 ❏ 2.0 additional units of MATH at the 2000 level or above, excluding MATH 2243
Note: Students who want Mathematics for a second teachable subject for secondary education are advised to include MATH 2221, 2222 and either 2206 or 2208

Minor in Statistics

To obtain a minor in Statistics, students must fulfill the following requirements:
 ❏ MATH 1113, 1114, 2206, 2208 and 2209

 ❏ MATH 3303 or 3304

Minor in Applied Statistics

To obtain a minor in Applied Statistics, students must fulfill the following requirements:
 ❏ MATH 2208, 2209, 2284, 3303 and 3304
 ❏ MATH 1130 or 0.5 additional unit of MATH, excluding MATH 2243

Note: Because of the overlap with Mathematics major and minor requirements, students who major in Mathematics must satisfy the minor requirement for their degree in an area other than Applied Statistics. Minors in Mathematics, Statistics and in Applied Statistics cannot be used to satisfy the requirements of the “double minor” option of the Bachelor of Arts or of the Bachelor of Science. Any students who satisfy existing degree requirements and complete the above-noted sequence of courses shall be acknowledged in the usual way as having done the minor in Applied Statistics.
