## Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

### Mathematical Science (MSCI)

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

#### Major (Honours Program)

Knowledge of Mathematics and Statistics is crucial for understanding our world. This unique program provides a core of both mathematics and statistics with a choice of a Mathematics stream or a Statistics stream. This major also requires the completion of an area of emphasis as listed. Students are encouraged to speak with a Program Counsellor when choosing courses for the selected stream and area of emphasis.

Students may enter this major in Semester 1 or any semester thereafter. A student wishing to declare the major must consult the Faculty Advisor. A total of 20.00 credits is required to complete the Major which includes at least 10.00 credits in Mathematics & Statistics, 0.50 credits in Computing and Information Science, and an additional 2.50 credits in an area of emphasis. Of the total credits required, students are required to complete 2.00 Mathematics and/or Statistics credits at the 4000 level and an additional 3.00 Mathematics and/or Statistics credits must be at the 3000 or 4000 level.

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