Department of Mathematics and Statistics

Come East, Go Further!

Memorial is one of Canada's top universities and our Department is aiming to become one of the best.  We are young — half our faculty have been hired since 2005 — and proud that fully 20% of us hold the university's highest rank, University Research Professor.

We offer courses leading to general and honours degrees in both the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts, with concentrations in applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics. We also offer a variety of graduate degrees in both mathematics and statistics. Currently, 100 undergraduate students and 70 graduate students are enrolled in our 23 degree programs.

You will love St. John's, the oldest city in North America, with its vibrant cultural and social life, great coastal walking trails, the scene of fabulous folk and rock festivals and home to an annual Regatta that dates to 1816.



On Saturday, May 14, everyone is invited to an open house event that will take place under and around the blue whale skeleton that hangs in Memorial's new Core Science Facility.

Come learn the story of the whale skeleton and take part in interactive learning opportunities, and have lots of fun along the way.

The Faculty of Science held its first interdisciplinary research conference April 8-9.

Scientific Endeavours in Academia (SEA) brought together undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty from across the faculty’s nine departments and five interdisciplinary graduate programs.
