On this page you will find useful information for prospective undergraduate students, including Degree Information, Admission Requirements and List of Programs.
Degree Information
Carleton University offers a variety of undergraduate programs in Mathematics and Statistics leading to a Bachelor of Mathematics (BMath) degree, as well as to the Bachelor of Science (Double Honours) in Mathematics and Physics. Refer to the List of Programs below for specific information on the programs offered.
You can choose either an Honours program, which requires 20.0 credits and normally takes four years to complete, or a General program, which requires 15.0 credits and is normally completed in three years of fulltime study.
Admission Requirements:
 The Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, including a minimum of six 4 U/M courses.
 Your six 4 U/M courses must include Advanced Functions and Introductory Calculus and Geometry and Discrete Mathematics or equivalent
Please refer to our Undergraduate Admissions page for all the information of admission.
List of Programs
Below is the list of programs offered by the Departement of Mathematics and Statistics of Carleton University. For more details on the program please visit the pages Undergraduate Calendar – Programs and Undergraduate Admissions – Program Information.
 Computational and Applied Mathematics and Statistics (Honours)

This program is intended to develop technical and practical skills of students – in mathematics and statistics, augmented with a solid core of computer science.
In this program, students are exposed to most of the honours mathematics/statistics core of the first two years, together with a core of computer science. Then the third and fourth years allow the student to select courses which focus either on modern applied mathematics, or on applied statistics.
 Computer Mathematics (General)
Computer Mathematics provides you with a background in computerrelated mathematical ideas, plus a strong foundation in computer science. If you want to pursue a career in government, industry, management, or systems analysis, this may be the program for you.
 Mathematics (General or Honours)

These programs provide general training in Mathematics and Statistics. The General programs are less theoretical than the Honours programs which may form an excellent introduction to graduate studies. The main areas of concentration are: algebra, analysis, topology, applied mathematics (classical and modern), statistics and probability. In the Honours program, you may choose to pursue a Specialization in Stochastics.
 Statistics (General or Honours)

The General program in Statistics provides you with the background you will need to work as a methodologist in a variety of statisticsrelated fields. The Honours program prepares you for a career as a professional statistician, other related careers or for further advanced studies. Graduates from this program (with a minor from another field) will automatically have satisfied the educational requirements for the Associate Statistician (A.Stat.) professional designation of the Statistical Society of Canada (for more information see www.ssc.ca, and http://www.ssc.ca/en/accreditation/apply/suggestedcoursesusetowardsastatdesignation).
 Concentration in Actuarial Science

A concentration in actuarial science is offered as part of the Statistics Honours program. In addition to the core mathematics and statistics topics, this concentration incorporates a targeted sequence of courses in Business and Economics that provides students with the necessary background to satisfy the six undergraduate requirements set out by the Society of Actuaries for professional designation. Graduates from this concentration who achieve the grade level requirement will have satisfied all the requirements of the Validation of Educational Experience for the designation of Associate of the Society of Actuaries.
 Computer Science and Mathematics
If you are also interested in Computer Science, consider our BMath Combined Honours program in Computer Science and Mathematics. This limited enrolment program, similar to the Bachelor of Computer Science program, places equal emphasis on Mathematics and Computer Science. You can follow either of two Concentrations: Computing Theory and Numerical Methods, or Statistics and Computing.
 Combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program

This program “fasttracks” exceptional Mathematics or Statistics students, making it possible to graduate in four years instead of the traditional five, with both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree. You can graduate with a Combined BMath/MSc in Mathematics or in Statistics.
