VIU Math Department


Mathematical graduates have skills in problem solving, problem analysis, modelling, computing, and data analysis which are highly valued by employers in general. Consequently, they do well in the employment market.

High–School students interested in pursuing such a career need well-trained and enthusiastic math teachers to inspire and coach them.

Our math minor will equip future teachers with the skills to fill this role.

In fact, in recent times the main growth area for career opportunities for mathematical graduates, not only in Canada, but world-wide, has been in educational institutes (secondary or high school, college, university).

So employment prospects are excellent, whether you see yourself as someone who will use mathematics to solve real-world problems in science, engineering or business, or as someone who wishes to pass their knowledge and interest in math on to the next generation.
