The Department has many outstanding researchers in Mathematics and Statistics with international reputations. We also pride ourselves on the excellence of our teaching and research training. As a graduate student you will have an extensive curriculum to choose from, with both fundamental and advanced courses in every branch of mathematics: algebra, analysis, differential equations, geometry, logic, statistics and scientific computing.

In stark contrast to the situation in some other disciplines, in Mathematics and Statistics there is a strong spirit of cooperation between the different universities in the Montréal area. These comprise the Institut des sciences mathématiques (ISM). The member departments represent:

- Concordia University
- McGill University
- Université de Montréal
- UQAM
- UQTR
- Université Laval
- Université de Sherbrooke

As a graduate student, you may take certain courses at the other Universities associated with the ISM for credit.

The Centre de recherches mathématiques is a Montréal research centre, now officially affiliated to McGill, which presents an astonishing variety of activities including theme years and theme semesters as well as short duration conferences.

McGill Open House is moving to the Fall and is being expanded to showcase graduate study programs. Details can be found here.

## Graduate Interest Groups(GIGs)

Graduate interest groups are a new initiative by the Faculty of Science available to science U3 undergraduates and graduate students. Details can be found on the GIGs webpage.

The graduate pages on this website are laid out essentially for two audiences:

- Prospective graduate students
- Existing graduate students
