Students should consider electives that will lead to the completion of requirements for a minor also.  For example, students may want to take courses leading to the completion of a minor in Business, Economics, or Physics. 

 


 

Math majors work in many careers beyond education, including the financial industry, the computer industry, and the data mining industry (think Stats Canada or "working at Google"). As well Math majors outperform all other disciplines in the LSAT (law) and the GMAT (business). If you want see some statistics, click here.

Most degrees in mathematics have a pretty standard first two years. This means students interested in a transfer to another institution or campus are usually able to complete their first two years at Grenfell Campus. Similarly, students can transfer into our program in their second and third year. For recommended courses, see the streams listed above.

To aid scheduling of courses, students thinking of taking several second year math courses in their second year at Grenfell should inform the Program Chair or Head of the Division of Science during their FIRST year of studies.
