The Faculty of Science offers the largest variety of science programs in the province. With over 50 undergraduate programs options to choose from in the following areas: Computing Sciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, and Physical Sciences.
The Department of Statistics along with the Department of Economics (Faculty of Arts) offer a Joint Honours program for students wishing in depth study in Statistics and Economics.
The Departments of Statistics and Mathematics offer a joint Honours program for students wishing in depth study in Statistics and Mathematics.
The Department of Statistics and the Warren Centre for Actuarial Studies and Research offer a joint Honours program for students wishing in depth study in Statistics and Actuarial Mathematics.
The joint Physics & Astronomy/ Computer Science Honours program (details) combines core elements of the undergraduate Honours program in Physics & Astronomy with key courses from the Honours degree in Computer Science. Students will benefit from exposure to practical problem solving in physical science using computational methods as well as by gaining specific expertise in computer operating systems, data structures and scientific computing.
Medical physics is the application of physics to medicine. It generally concerns physics as applied to medical imaging and radiotherapy, although a medical physicist may also work in many other areas of healthcare. The Medical and Biological Physics Honours degree stream introduces students to the theory, tools and techniques required for a career in Biological, Medical or Health Physics.
The joint program features a greater degree of specialization in mathematics. It is ideally suited for students interested in a career in theoretical physics. Students graduating from this program are well prepared to enter graduate school in these and closely related fields.
“Joining the Undergraduate Chemistry Society (or “Chem Club”) was easily one of the best things I did. University isn’t just about studying/working 24/7, but also about the relationships and network you build during your time as an undergraduate.”
“I chose to study biology because I love animals and I want to contribute to their conservation. I also really enjoy working outdoors because every day is like a mini adventure, so I am currently pursuing a degree in field ecology.”
“What stands out about my experience at the University of Manitoba are the professors and students I’ve met, they’ve been very approachable, and I’ve made many new friendships. I’ve also had the opportunity to work in a research lab and gain first-hand experience in a field that interests me”
“There will be times when certain courses will make you feel unsure and you’ll question if you’ll make it through. Stay true to what you are passionate about and press forward, soon these hard times will be over, and you’ll emerge a new strong warrior.”
“One of the things I’m super passionate about is volunteering for Science Rendezvous. Yes, we can do science and research and all this cutting edge stuff, but if we can’t communicate it to the rest of the world, then what’s the point? Science is for everybody.”

Addressing the complex issue of underrepresentation of Indigenous youth in post-secondary studies, and STEM fields. Darja Barr, Department of Mathematics, outlines new recruitment initiatives at the University of Manitoba to attract and support Indigenous youth. As the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) reports: At post secondary institutions across Canada, the recruitment and retention of Indigenous and First Nations...
“If you think you’re too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent a night with a mosquito.” – African proverbA slender, silvery fish around six or seven inches long, the capelin is not what you might call a particularly impressive specimen. Yet without this little denizen of the deep, the food chain off the...
May 24, 2018, Canadian Astronomical Society Every galaxy is thought to harbor a supermassive black hole in the center, or nucleus, of the galaxy, and in active galaxies this black hole is fed by infalling matter. This “central engine” is typically surrounded by dusty molecular gas in a doughnut configuration, which hides the black hole and...
