Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Financial Mathematics (BSc)


Laurier’s Financial Mathematics program is structured to teach you mathematics and its financial applications at the same time. Our core courses cover many topics that are fundamental to financial mathematics, including calculus, real analysis, linear algebra and geometry, differential equations, numerical analysis, optimization, probability theory and statistics, stochastic processes, and stochastic calculus.

You will obtain extensive experience solving real-world problems in financial mathematics and risk management in our math labs, where you will use appropriate mathematical and statistical software.

Our Bachelor of Science (BSc) program is focused on how Mathematics is connected with natural, physical and computer sciences. You’ll have the opportunity to complete one or two options in science subjects. We also offer a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Financial Mathematics.
