Mathematics and Statistics Department

Welcome to Mathematics and Statistics at StFX, where students undertake a course of studies that focus on either or both fields. Mathematics is the science of structure, order and relation. It deals with logical and quantitative reasoning. Statistics is the science and art of data collection and analysis. It deals with estimation, hypothesis testing and decision making.  

There are several degree choices within these programs; a student wishing to major in Mathematics or Statistics may do so in either Arts or Science, depending on the student’s interests and career objectives. There is also a B.Sc. Advanced Major in Mathematics and Business degree. The program offers considerable flexibility in how a student’s Mathematics and Statistics courses are complemented, leading to a B.Sc. or B.A. degree.  

Math, Stats and CS Student Society

The Math/CS Society tries to get students interested in mathematics and computer science in a few different ways. We host a volunteer tutorial session every Monday from 5:15pm-7:15pm in MULH 4024, where upper year students help out anyone who may want some extra help in their math/stats and CS courses. We also have a variety of social events, including potlucks, pool, bowling, hockey games, etc. People can get involved by stopping by the math department or emailing us!  

Note: If you are not on the mailing list, but would like to be so, let us know by emailing @email! You can also find us on Facebook.
