Department of Mathematics & Computer Science


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.

Department Highlights

Felix Baril Boudreau - Number Theory Seminar

The Distribution of Logarithmic Derivatives of Quadratic L-functions in Positive Characteristic

Friday, February 29 ~ Markin Hall M1060

1:45-2:45 pm   

We discuss connections of this result with Euler-Kronecker constants and ideal class groups of quadratic extensions. This is joint work with Amir Akbary


Dr. Sezer - PIMS Distinguished Speaker Series

Title: A Markov Chain Gaussian Process framework for modeling wind speed over a large geographical area

An important design consideration when modeling the joint statistical behaviour of wind speed measurements over multiple sites and time points is that the models should allow inference for future sites for which no historical measurements are available. 

Date:  Friday, March 8

Time:  12:00 - 1:00 pm

Location:  Markin Hall - Room M1040

Snacks Provided - Everyone is welcome!!


Congratulations Dr. Fitzpatrick

Fall 2023 EDI Scholars

Dr. Sean Fitzpatrick (Mathematics & Computer Science – Faculty of Arts & Science) plans to work with undergraduate student assistants to ensure that the open textbooks for many mathematics courses are fully accessible for all students, including those who require screen reader technology. Part of this work will include ensuring that all images have alt-text descriptions, and that all features of the textbook can be accessed using keyboard navigation.

“I am excited to receive this award because it will enable me to complete some long-overdue work on accessibility,” says Fitzpatrick. “I hope that the status of EDI Scholar will help me to promote the importance of selecting accessible course materials, and to remind people that our commitment to EDI must include accommodations for those with disabilities.”
