Department of Mathematics and Statistics College of Physical and Engineering Science.

Mathematics and Statistics have become crucial components in the understanding and exploration of more and more disciplines. Persons with a strong background in mathematical Sciences have access to a broad range of rewarding opportunities. Within the B.A. program, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers areas of concentration, majors and minors, both in Mathematics and Statistics. The Mathematics programs are designed to provide considerable flexibility for students to pursue their own interests, whether they be in the concepts of "pure" mathematics or techniques and applications. As a result, these programs open up opportunities for careers in many sectors such as business, education, government, industry, or medicine.

General Program Area of Concentration

A minimum of 10 Mathematics courses is required, including:

  1. eight courses must be in Mathematics
  2. two courses may be in Statistics or Computing Science
  3. at least 2 of the Mathematics courses must be at the 300 level or above.

Honours Programs

Students without credit in OAC Calculus should take 63-120 then 63-121, and should take 63-120 as early as possible. Students without OAC Algebra and Geometry should first take 63-215 and then 63-216.

Mathematics Core Requirements

63-120, 63-121, 63-200, 63-216, 63-220.

For both a major and a minor, it is strongly recommended that 74-211 be included as an elective.

A minimum of 16 courses (other than 63-105) is required, including:

  1. the Mathematics core
  2. 63-221, 63-320
  3. one course in Statistics and 1 course in Computing Science (from 27-150, 27-160, or higher)
  4. seven additional Mathematics courses including at least 2 at the 300 level and 2 at the 400 level.

Honours Program Minor

A minimum of 10 courses (other than 63-105) is required, including:

  1. the Mathematics core
  2. one course in either Statistics or Computing Science (from 27-150, 27-160 or higher.
  3. four additional Mathematics courses at the 200 level or above, at least 2 of which must be at the 300 level or above.
