Scope and content

The Mathematics and Physics Department at Ryerson began offering service courses in 1966. By the early 1970s, the department had developed two programs, and a study was conducted to reorganize the department due to this transition. The growing use of computers resulted in the creation of the Math, Physics and Computer Science (MPCS) department in the early 1980s. In 1985, the program converted from a diploma to a degree program. By 1988, the department offered a Bachelor of Technology in Applied Computer Science and was part of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The department received approval in May 1996 to offer a five-year co-operative program in addition to its regular four-year option. In the late 1990s, students were given the option to minor in mathematics. Mathematics became a department of its own in July 2005. The Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics and Its Applications was introduced in Fall 2008. The following year, the Department commenced its Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics program. The Department redesigned the Mathematics and Its Applications program in 2013 and, that same year, began offering a Financial Mathematics BSc, the only such undergraduate program in Toronto. The Department of Mathematics is part of the Faculty of Science.
