X. Degree Programs
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
Mathematics (MATH)
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.
Area of Concentration (General Program)
A minimum of 5.00 Mathematics credits is required, including:

4.00 credits in Mathematics, including at least 1.00 from courses at the 3000 level or above

1.00 additional credits from Mathematics, Statistics and/or Computing Science
Honours Programs
Students without MHF4U Advanced Functions and/or MCV4U Calculus and Vectors should consult with the department advisor.
Major (Honours Program)
Students may enter this major in Semester 1 or any semester thereafter. A student wishing to declare the major must consult the Faculty Advisor.
