Programme Overview

The course provides a balanced programme of both applied and theoretical Mathematics and the opportunity to study Statistics and operational research. Mathematics is a basic tool in the physical and engineering sciences. Also, the current developments in the social and life sciences have become increasingly quantitative. Thus, the Mathematics undergraduate program emphasizes the applications of theory and methods to real life and physical problems. It helps the student to establish an expertise in Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, or Industrial Mathematics.

Mission Statement of the Department of Mathematics:
To provide instruction in mathematics at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to carry out scientific research adapted to the changing needs of the society. The undergraduate programme is designed to provide tools for mathematical techniques and thinking in such a way as to enable the graduates to find gainful employment in areas where mathematical knowledge is required and to have the adequate background necessary for the pursuit of studies and research in mathematics and related fields at the postgraduate level. The department, through its programmes, also seeks to satisfy the evolving needs of mathematicians and users of mathematics.

Objective of Degree Programme
Provide students with tools for mathematical techniques and thinking, and to expose them to basic mathematical processes and principles in both pure and applied mathematics. Students who minor in computer science are enabled to have a working knowledge of current programming languages and use of various computer tools and packages.


The curriculum is delivered by dedicated, motivated, research active and very experience Mathematicians and researchers, who provide up-to-date information in their respective disciplines. A range of teaching and assessment techniques are used and due emphasis is given to the development of generic transferable skills (IT, communication, teamwork, self-management, problem solving) for the employment market.

Admission Requirements

In addition to university and faculty requirements, students who wish to enroll for a B.Sc in mathematics should have obtained at least a C grade in mathematics at the GCE A’ level ( or equivalent) or a special recommendation of the Department. It is the students’ responsibility to choose courses in accordance with departmental and faculty regulations. All students intending to pursue a degree programming in mathematics or statistics should consult the department which provides advice on such important matters as available specialized programmes, course sequences, possible combinations of major and minor fields, and recommended undergraduate studies leading to graduate studies.

A message from the school about the 2020-2021 academic year reads:
Cognizant of the fact that the people of the Northwest and Southwest regions have been groaning under the weight of the socio-political crisis for close to four years now, and that currently the entire country is in the grips of the coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic which both have far-reaching economic implications, the Bishops of the Ecclesiastical Province of Bamenda have decided to grant certain percentage discounts on tuition fees to the ‘early birds’ who enrol on any of the school’s degree programmes, beginning next academic year till further notice.
