Why study mathematics at CapU?
Math is a universal language. Learn how to speak it and you’ll unlock doors to great jobs in business, the sciences, finance, engineering and technology.
While learning mathematics may be challenging at times, CapU stands out in our ability to give students extra-curricular support. Our Math Learning Centre is staffed entirely by department instructors, so you can drop in any time during the day for one-on-one help. You’ll also have access to study areas, reference materials and technological equipment.
Career paths and further education
Mathematics courses are a requirement for CapU’s Bachelor of Science degree, engineering transfer programs and Associate of Science degrees. A STEM degree program at any institution will require mathematics, and CapU credits can be transferred to other universities. We also offer courses for non-science majors, specifically for students who plan to become elementary school teachers.
Studying mathematics enhances your problem-solving and modelling skills, while statistics teaches how to read graphs, interpret data and build hypothesis. These skills are essential for a broad range of careers, from the health and medical fields to business.
