Welcome to the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science
Our computer science, mathematics and statistics faculty and instructors are top of the line, with credentials to rival other universities in and outside of Canada.
We offer Bachelor of Science undergraduate degrees in Applied Statistics, Computer Science and Mathematics. Both Master's and Doctoral levels of study are also available. Department faculty are currently working with students studying at each of these levels, many of whom are graduate students from around the world. Learn more about our majors and minors.
Undergraduate students may have opportunities to do research projects with our faculty, using modern facilities, for hands-on experience. Several department faculty have independent research programmes supported by agencies such as NSERC and IBM Canada, and at times, there may be a collaboration with other disciplines.
During this unique time in the world, the University of Lethbridge may be a bit restrictive for personal visits, so please take the time to "meet" our faculty and instructors via the buttons directly below. We think you'll see the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science offers a wide range of topics in each of our disciplines, and we're confident you will find something to appeal to your intellectual interests.
Dentist Fern Leavens (BSc '13) recognized as ULAA 2021 Young Alumna of the Year
“In a short time, Fern has demonstrated a high level of excellence in her chosen field of dentistry,” says Jason Elliott, president of the ULAA. “She wears many hats, but above all else, she is passionate about providing all patients with care that goes above and beyond. There is no doubt that she delivers on this.”
Fern Leavens (BSc ‘13) is an exemplary health-care provider, teacher and mentor who has committed her career to quality patient care. Her impressive track record in the dentistry field is further elevated by her reputation as a thorough, humble and hardworking professional. During her time at the University of Lethbridge, she completed an undergraduate degree in mathematics, with an honours thesis in biochemistry. As part of her academic endeavours, Leavens conducted research in computational chemistry and biochemistry, resulting in multiple publications. She then went on to become a dentist, obtaining her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2016. However, Leavens’ education journey was far from finished, and she completed additional hospital and advanced dentistry training through a general practice residency.
The University of Lethbridge’s new Graduate Certificate in Bioinformatics will combine excellence in teaching with cutting-edge research.
