Students accepted into the BSc (General Mathematics)/BEd concurrent degree program must meet the requirements for admission into the General Mathematics Program. Students interested in Science education should consider the BSc (Natural Sciences)/BEd concurrent degree program. Students in the concurrent degree program should also consult the information on the program in the Werklund School of Education portion of the calendar.

Note: Admission to the program is competitive and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Students interested in the concurrent degree program should consult the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and the Werklund School of Education at the earliest possible opportunity.


Students must successfully complete a minimum of 45 units to a maximum of 66 units in Courses Constituting the Field of General Mathematics while fulfilling the following requirements:

The 90 units Faculty of Science part of the requirements for a major in the concurrent degree program in General Mathematics and Education are:

3 units - Education 201

3 units - English literature

12 units - Mathematics 211 or 213; Mathematics 311 or 313; Mathematics 249 or 265 or 275; Mathematics 267 or 277

3 units - Mathematics 271 or 273

3 units - Mathematics 319

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

24 units - Selected from the Field of General Mathematics

3 units - Selected from the Field of General Mathematics at the 400 level or higher

15 units - Non-Major Field Requirement: Options outside the Field of General Mathematics

21 units - Options


  • Students who withdraw from the Education component of the concurrent degree program will be required to complete additional courses to obtain the BSc in General Mathematics.
  • The General Mathematics in Education degree is only awarded to students who complete all five years of the degree program. Students seeking the concurrent degree should follow the recommended course sequence exactly.
Recommended Program Sequence for the BSc in General Mathematics Concurrent with Education

There is a Recommended Course Sequence for this program. This sequence describes both the recommended order in which courses should be taken and the recommended course(s) in instances where multiple courses may fulfill a degree requirement. All possible courses that may fulfill degree requirements are found in the Required Courses listed above.

Taking courses in the order of the Recommended Course Sequence will ensure students can complete their program in a timely fashion. The time to complete a program may be lengthened if students choose to complete their requirements in an alternate order.
