Students considering persuing a hounour degree in Mathematics or Statistics
or a combined honours degree should contact the coordinator, Dr. David Iron
Dr. Mike Dowd (Statistics), as early as possible . All honours programs
must be approved by the honours coordinator.
It is important to decide early whether you want to enroll in the
honours program as some of the specific requirements involve second
year courses which are prerequests for the third year honours courses.
- MATH 2001.03/2002.03
- MATH 2030.03/2135.03 and 2505.03
- Two other credits in mathematics at or above the 2000 level - not including classes listed below.
- MATH 3030X/Y.06
- MATH 3500X/Y.06
- MATH 4950.03/Honours Research Project
- Two other credits at or above the 4000 level.
Students may choose programmes with a concentration in Applied Mathematics or Pure Mathematics. 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 programmes must be approved by the Honours advisor.

BSc Combined Honours
A combined honours programme may be appropriate for many students
wishing to have a broad range of expertise.
Students interested in taking honours in mathematics and another
subject as a combined programme should consult the Mathematics Honours
advisor. Combined programmes in areas such as Mathematics and Satistics,
Mathematics and Computer Science, Mathematics and Physics, Mathematics
and Chemistry and Mathematics and Economics are common, but combined
programmes with Mathematics and any subject in the Faculty of Science,
Faculty of Arts and Social Science, and Faculty of Computer Science
can be arranged. These programmes must satisfy University Regulations,
but are designed to satisfy the interests and needs of student.
Students contemplating a combined honours programme in Mathematics
and another subject should bear in mind that the work in either subject
would probably be insufficient for admission to a regular graduate
programme. A qualifying year would usually be necessary
- MATH 1000.03 or MATH 1000.03/1010.03
- STAT 1060.03*
- CSCI 1100.03/1101.03**
- MATH 2001.03
- MATH 2002.03
- MATH 2030.03/2040.03 or 2135.03
- STAT 2060.03
- STAT 2080.03**
- STAT 2050.03**
- Two to 5 other half credits in statistics at or above the 2000 level but not including classes listed below
- STAT 3340.03
- STAT 3350.03
- STAT 3360.03
- STAT 3380.03
- STAT 3460.03
- Two 3000 level Mathematics courses chosen in consultation with the statistics honors advisor
- STAT 4066.03
- STAT 4350.03
- STAT 4620.03
- STAT 4950.03
* The requirement to take STAT 1060.03 may be waived for students
entering the programme in their second year.
**Some students may take either CSCI 1100.03/1101.03 and /or STAT 2050.03, STAT 2080.03 in the first year of their degree programme.
It is recommended that students take STAT 2300.03 and CSCI 3111.03/MATH 3170.03 in either the second or third year of their degree programme.
Combined HonoursStudents interested in taking honours in Statistics combined with another subject should consult the honours degree coordinator, Dr. Mike Dowd, through whom a suitable course of study can be arranged.
