Mathematics plays an integral role in many aspects of our society. It is a cornerstone of such scientific disciplines as physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, and computer science, as well as the areas of economics and business. The MICA program at Brock University will allow you to explore a wide variety of courses to suit your particular academic and career goals. You will have the opportunity to take courses in pure mathematics (development of mathematical ideas and concepts for their own sake), applied mathematics (mathematics for applications in science, engineering, economics or business), and statistics (experimental design, sampling methods, and data analysis techniques). In a degree program in mathematics, you will have the opportunity to develop the quantitative and analytical skills required in a diverse field of employment and educational opportunities.

Many students who obtain an undergraduate degree in mathematics continue on to graduate work, either studying mathematics for enjoyment in its own right, or for its application to a particular field or problem. However, many career options are available for mathematics graduates at all levels. Some examples of potential careers are:

Actuary | Biostatistician | College or University Professor |

Mathematician | Stockbroker | Market Research Analyst |

Cryptanalyst | Statistician | Teacher |

Mathematical Physicist | Engineer | Computer Scientist |

Urban Planner | Economist | Credit Risk Analyst |

Forensic Analyst | Computational Biologist | Architect |

Foreign Exchange Trader | Quantitative Financial Market Analyst | Cost Estimator |

Inventory Control Specialist | Fraud Risk Analyst | Epidemiologist |
