All first-year Science courses will be delivered virtually for Winter 2021. Due to the COVID-19 provincial lock-down, all students who were expecting in-person labs, should check their McMaster e-mail for important winter announcements..

Actuarial and Financial Math Supplementary Application

Admission to level 2 or above of the Actuarial and Financial Mathematics (AFM) program in the department of Mathematics & Statistics at McMaster University, requires completion of a supplemental application. The main intended effects of this supplemental application are:

  • Setting a level of required communication and professional development skills for entry to the program.
  • Identifying the importance of these skills to the students.
  • Creating an opportunity to engage with students about their development.

For reference purposes only, last year's supplemental application questions were:
1)    Why are you more interested in the Actuarial and Financial Mathematics program than other mathematics or statistics programs at McMaster?
2)    What are some of the key professional skills that you hope to learn and/or develop during your time as an undergraduate at McMaster? How do you hope to develop them?
3)    Choose a mathematical theorem or formula and explain what it is about in a way that someone with little mathematical knowledge could understand.

The supplementary application will be available here April 2021 for admission to level 2 or above of the AFM program for September 2021.
