The mathematics and computer science department at Mount Allison emphasizes hands-on learning.

Students are given ample opportunity to put theory into practice during labs, independent research projects, and while assisting in faculty research.

Mathematics has been around since humans first began using numbers, while computer science is a relatively recent discipline, but the two are closely connected subjects.

The department teaches all facets of the disciplines, from the purely theoretical to the practical, and offers a wide range of courses designed to meet the needs of a variety of users.
