The Carleton Advantage

When you study at Carleton, you will be guided by professors who are internationally recognized researchers and leaders in various disciplines in the mathematical and statistical sciences including:

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Pure Mathematics
  • Probability & Statistics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Biostatistics

In addition to a diverse perspective from faculty members in the field, students come from all over the world with varying undergraduate experiences.  This unique diversity of backgrounds and cultures further enriches your class-room studies and research opportunities. The School of Mathematics and Statistics also offers cotutelle opportunities for Ph.D. students.

Unparalleled opportunities for collaboration

Carleton is also a principal sponsoring member of the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences, providing students the opportunity to participate in conferences, workshops and lectures sponsored by the Fields Institute including the Fields-Carleton Distinguished Lecture Series.

The School is a member of the Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (OCIMS) which offers one of the largest graduate programs in mathematics and statistics in Canada.  Students have the unique opportunity to take courses at both Carleton University and the University of Ottawa while benefiting from the expertise of professors from both institutions.

First Cotutelle student to graduate at fall 2015 convocation


“I remained at Carleton for my PhD because of the undeniable learning experience it had to offer. Being a joint institute with the University of Ottawa and having close ties to the Fields Institute, there are a multitude of high-level courses, seminars and colloquia available on a continuous basis. As part of the Cotutelle program, I spent 2012 in Lille, France, which was simply the must fulfilling academic year of my life.”

Jason Crann, PhD Candidate (Pure Mathematics)
