# Mathematics

## A variety of programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science

### Minor in Mathematics

The minor in Mathematics is available to students registered in the BA, BSc and BCS 20 credit major, honours or 15 credit minor programs.

### Major or Double Major in Mathematics

This will provides a broad coverage of the discipline but is slightly less demanding than the Honours programs. You can choose from** Bsc or BA Major in Mathematics** or ** BSc Double Major in Mathematics and another Science subject, Double Major in Mathematics and a BA Subject.**

Students completing a double major with Mathematics can fulfil the Mathematics requirements by following one of two programs available. In both cases, students are advised to consult with the department.

### Honours or Combined Honours in Mathematics

It is normally required for students wishing to do graduate work. **BSc Honours in Mathematics** provides a rigorous training in the discipline. Students may choose programs with a concentration in **Applied Mathematics** or **Pure Mathematics**.

A **Bsc Combined Honours program** may be appropriate for many students wishing to have a broad range of expertise. Students wishing to include Computer Science should consider** Combined Honours in Mathematics and Computer Science**. Students wishing to include Statistics should consider **Combined Honours in Mathematics and Statistics**. All Honours programs must be approved by the Honours advisor.

### Certificates

Students who complete a required set of mathematics and statistics courses as part of a 20-credit degree program will earn professionally-recognized certificates. You can choose **Certificate in Actuarial and Financial Mathematics** or **Certificate in Applied and Computational Mathematics.**
