Students may focus their program on one of two areas of interest by including a specified set of courses into their Major degree. Successful completion will mean that the area of concentration will appear on the transcript. Students should carefully plan their course selections to ensure that prerequisites for upper-level courses are obtained. Consultation with the Undergraduate Director on a regular basis is highly recommended.

**A. Concentration in Mathematical Finance and Risk Management**

The first 4.0 FCE required in the Concentration, up to and including Applied Mathematics 311, are the same as in the Major program. The remaining 16.0 FCE required in the Concentration are:

0.5 FCE - Statistics 323

1.0 FCE - Computer Science 231 and 233 or Computer Science 235 and Actuarial Science 325

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 421 or 423 or Pure Mathematics 421 or 521

0.5 FCE – Mathematics 335 or 355 or Pure Mathematics 435 or 455

0.5 FCE – Mathematics 445 or 447 or 545 or Pure Mathematics 445 or 545

1.0 FCE - Statistics 505 and 507

0.5 FCE - Mathematics 411

3.0 FCE - Applied Mathematics 413, 481, 491, 493, 581, and 583

4.0 FCE - Breadth requirement: Options from Faculties other than the Faculty of Science (check Table I in 3.4 Program Requirements for ineligible courses). Of these 4.0 FCE, at least 1.0 FCE must be from the Faculty of Arts. Science 311 may be counted among the 4.0 FCE from other Faculties.
