# 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 a 120 credit hour Bachelor of Applied Computer Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Community Design, Bachelor of Computer Science, Bachelor of Informatics, Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science (Medical Sciences) program.

A BA or BSc (90 credit hour) degree program with a Minor in Mathematics is also available

### Major or Double Major in Mathematics

The Major in Mathematics will provide 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**, **BSc Double Major in Mathematics and another Science subject, **or **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 recommended to consult with a Mathematics Advisor.

*Note that students intending to continue into Graduate Studies should enroll in an Honours Program

### Honours or Combined Honours in Mathematics

Completion of an Honours Program 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 students wishing to have a broader 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 their degree program will earn professionally-recognized certificates. Students can choose a **Certificate in Actuarial and Financial Mathematics**, a **Certificate in Applied and Computational Mathematics **or a **Certificate in Data Analytics**.
