X--Degree Programs


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 5.00 Mathematics credits is required, including:

  1. 4.00 credits in Mathematics, including at least 1.00 from courses at the 3000 level or above
  2. 1.00 additional credit from Mathematics, Statistics and/or Computing Science

Honours Programs

Students without credit in OAC Calculus should take MATH*1000 then MATH*1210, and should take MATH*1200 as early as possible. Students without OAC Algebra and Geometry should first take MATH*2150 and then MATH*2160.

Mathematics Core Requirements for Honours

MATH*1200 [0.50] Calculus I
MATH*1210 [0.50] Calculus II
MATH*2000 [0.50] Set Theory
MATH*2160 [0.50] Linear Algebra I
MATH*2200 [0.50] Advanced Calculus I

NOTE: For both a major and a minor, it is strongly recommended that PHIL*2110 be included as an elective and be taken as early as possible.
