Program Information

School: University of Alberta
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Theoretical and Mathematical Physics
Description: The Honors in Mathematical Physics program gives you the opportunity to combine studies in high-level mathematics with studies in high-level physics. The program is designed to teach you how mathematics is fundamental for theoretical and experimental physics and how physical systems can be described and analyzed mathematically. By completing this degree you will be well suited to pursue graduate studies in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering. This program can only be taken as part of a BSc with Honors degree.

The Bachelor of Science Honors degree provides excellent training in one specific subject. As an Honors student, you will focus on one main field of study and must maintain a higher standard of academic achievement than students in a General or Specialization program. This is the best program if you plan to pursue a higher degree or a research-based or academic career.
