X. Degree Programs

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

Mathematics (MATH)

Department of Mathematics and Statistics, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences

Knowledge of mathematics is crucial for understanding our world. Students can choose to study mathematics as a minor in the B.A. Honours Program or as an area of concentration in the General Program. These specializations are designed to provide considerable flexibility for students to pursue their own mathematical interests, whether they be in the concepts of "pure" mathematics or techniques and applications. The Mathematics specializations develop skills that are valued in many sectors such as business, education, government, and industry.

Area of Concentration (General Program)

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 credits from Mathematics, Statistics and/or Computing Science

Minor (Honours Program)

A total of 5.00 credits is required to complete the Minor including:

(MATH*1080 or MATH*1200)*
(MATH*1090 or MATH*1210)**
(CIS*1910 or MATH*2000)***
MATH*2200 [0.50] Advanced Calculus I
STAT*2040 [0.50] Statistics I

0.50 additional Mathematics credits at the 2000 level or above.

1.50 additional Mathematics credits at the 3000 or 4000 level

* IPS*1500 can count toward this 0.50 credit

** IPS*1510 can count toward this 0.50 credit

*** MATH*2000 is recommended. It is required for students wishing to take MATH*3200, MATH*3130, or MATH*4310.

Note: Students majoring or minoring in Mathematical Science cannot minor in Mathematics.
