Courses constituting the field of Mathematics
Required Courses - Major Program

See also Section 3 (Faculty Regulations), Subsections 3.4A (Program Requirements - Major Programs) and 3.5B (Course Selection - Introductory Courses).

6 units - Mathematics 211 or 213; Mathematics 311 or 313

6 units - Mathematics 249 or 265 or 275; Mathematics 267 or 277

6 units - Two courses selected from:

  1. Statistics 205,
  2. Statistics 321
  3. Either Mathematics 271 or 273*

18 units - Options from the Field of Mathematics

3 units - Computer Science 231 or 217 or 235 or Data Science 211

6 units - Any courses in the Field of Mathematics at the 400 level or above

3 units - Mathematics 516 or 518 or Statistics 517

18 units - Breadth Requirement: Options from faculties other than the Faculty of Science (check Table I in 3.4 Program Requirements for ineligible courses). Of these 18 units, at least 6 units must be from the Faculty of Arts. Science 311 may be counted among the 18 units from other faculties.

54 units - Options

*Mathematics 271 and 273 are prerequisites to many Mathematics courses, Statistics 321 is a prerequisite to many Statistics courses.

Note: Course level is not an indicator of the student's year in the program.

Required Courses - Honours Program

In addition to the requirements specified by the Faculty of Science (see Section 3), students are required to complete the following program of study:

6 units - Mathematics 211 or 213*; Mathematics 311 or 313*

6 units - Mathematics 249 or 265 or 275; Mathematics 267 or 277

6 units - Two courses selected from:

  1. Statistics 205,
  2. Statistics 321
  3. Either Mathematics 271 or 273*

18 units - Any courses in the Field of Mathematics

6 units - Any courses in the Field of Mathematics at the 400 level or above

3 units - A course in the Field of Mathematics at the 500 level or above excluding Mathematics 516, 518 and Statistics 517

3 units - Mathematics 518 (with a grade of "B" or higher)

3 units - Computer Science 231 or 217 or 235 or Data Science 211

18 units - Breadth Requirement: Options from Faculties other than the Faculty of Science (check Table I in 3.4 Program Requirements for ineligible courses). Of these 18 units, at least 6 units must be from the Faculty of Arts. Science 311 may be counted among the 18 units from other Faculties.

51 units - Options

*These courses are recommended for students in the Honours Mathematics program.

Note: A grade of "B" or higher in Mathematics 518 is required for the Honours program. Students who do not achieve a grade of "B" or higher in Mathematics 518 may still graduate from the regular BSc in Mathematics. Whenever applicable and feasible, students in the Honours program should take the advanced version of any course in the field.

Recommendations

Students should consult with the Associate Head - Undergraduate or the Undergraduate Science Centre (USC) on a regular basis throughout their program.

Concentrations

Students may choose to focus their program on one of three areas of interest by including a specified set of courses into their Major degree. Students must apply for concentrations via their Student Centre. Concentrations 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 Associate Head - Undergraduate or the Undergraduate Science Centre (USC) on a regular basis is highly recommended.

A. Concentration in Statistics

Students must complete the same requirements as those in the Major program with some substitutions. For clarity, the requirements for the entire program are listed below.

1 It is recommended that students select one of Statistics 423 or 425, Statistics 429, and one of Statistics 431 or 505.

Honours degree with a Concentration in Statistics

Students wishing to complete an Honours degree in Mathematics with a Concentration in Statistics must have credit for both Mathematics 518 (with a grade of "B" or higher) and Statistics 517. The requirement of Mathematics 518 replaces 3 units of Options.

1 It is recommended that students select one of Statistics 423 or 425, Statistics 429, and one of Statistics 431 or 505.

B. Concentration in Computational Applied Mathematics

Students must complete the same requirements as those in the Major program with some substitutions. For clarity, the requirements for the entire program are listed below.

Honours degree with a Concentration in Computational Applied Mathematics

Students wishing to complete an Honours degree in Mathematics with a Concentration in Computational Applied Mathematics must complete the above requirements. However, Mathematics 518 (with a grade of "B" or higher) is specifically required and 3 units of Options is replaced by 3 units in the field of Mathematics at the 500 level.

C. Concentration in Mathematical Finance and Risk Management

Students must complete the same requirements as those in the Major program with some substitutions. For clarity, the requirements for the entire program are listed below.

Honours degree with a Concentration in Mathematical Finance and Risk Management

Students wishing to complete an Honours degree in Mathematics with a Concentration in Mathematical Finance and Risk Management must complete the above requirements. However, Mathematics 518 (with a grade of "B" or higher) is specifically required.

Recommendations

Students should consult with the Associate Head - Undergraduate or the Undergraduate Science Centre (USC) on a regular basis throughout their program.

Required Courses - Minor Program

30 units from the Field of Mathematics with at least 18 units at the 300 level or higher.

Note: The Mathematics minor is not available to Actuarial Science Majors and General Mathematics Majors. The Mathematics minor is not available in combination with any other Minor program offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
