Honors in Mathematics [Science]

Continuation in the Honors in Mathematics program requires successful completion of at least ★24 with a minimum 3.0 GPA and a minimum 3.0 GPA on all MATH courses completed in the previous Fall/Winter. In addition, graduation requires a minimum 3.0 GPA on all courses credited towards the degree and a minimum 3.0 GPA on all MATH courses credited towards the degree.

The program must contain the following courses. It is recommended that these courses be taken in the years indicated.

Year 1


  1. Each student's program must have the approval of the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences.
  2. With consent of the Department, students may substitute MATH 100 , MATH 113 , MATH 114 , MATH 134 , or MATH 144  for MATH 117 ; MATH 101 , MATH 115 , or MATH 146  for MATH 118 ; MATH 102  or MATH 125  for MATH 127 ; MATH 225  for MATH 227 .
  3. Several of the required courses, including MATH 411 , MATH 424 , MATH 447 , and MATH 448 , may only be offered in alternate years.
  4. ECON 299 , ECON 386  or ECON 387  may not be used for credit in any Honors degree offered by the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences.
  5. SCI 100 will be considered equivalent to MATH 114 , MATH 115 , CMPUT 174  and ★18 Science options (see details of courses ).
  6. Credit in SCI 151  will be considered equivalent to ★6 Science options.

The Department also offers a BA in Honors in Mathematics (see Honors in Mathematics , Faculty of Arts).

Science Internship Program

A Science Internship Program, similar to a co-op program, is offered to students in the General, Specialization or Honors programs in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (see Science Internship Program  for guidelines to the program). The Science Internship designation will appear on the degree parchments of students who have participated in the program and who have also successfully completed MATH 400  or STAT 400 .
