Mathematics

Programs in Mathematics

The following descriptions indicate minimum program requirements. Courses bearing the "MATH" and the "STAT" abbreviations are considered as being in different subjects. The number of credit units of "STAT" courses that may be included in a Mathematics major is limited. Please consult the following information for details.

Important Notes

Students who have not taken all of the required courses in their second year are encouraged to discuss alternate routes with the Head of the Department.

Students intending to enter the third or fourth year of a program leading to the Honours degree are required to consult with the Head of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics or designate for approval of an acceptable program.

In exceptional circumstances a student may be prepared to take a graduate mathematics or statistics course in the final year. Students wishing approval to take such a course and to count it towards the Honours requirements, should consult with the department's Honours Committee.

Students who complete an introductory course in statistical methodology that is essentially equivalent to STAT 242.3 may use such a course to satisfy the prerequisite requirements provided by STAT 242.3. However, such students will be required to add an additional approved 3 credit-unit course in statistics, mathematics or an area of application to their programs.

Junior MATH course credits

Up to 9 credit units may be obtained from the first-year offerings in mathematics depending on the courses taken and the order in which they are taken. For detailed information on which courses may be taken for credit please see the Academic Information and Policies section.
