Fall 2014 – Summer 2015
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers programs in both Arts and Science. For a list of teaching staff and an outline of the nature of the discipline, refer to the eCalendar under Faculties & Schools > Faculty of Science > Undergraduate > Mathematics and Statistics (MATH).
A Desautels Faculty of Management B.Com. degree with a Major in Mathematics, and a Schulich School of Music B.Mus. degree with Honours in Theory with Mathematics option are also available.
Students entering a Mathematics program are normally expected to have completed MATH 133; MATH 139 or MATH 140; MATH 141; or their equivalents. Otherwise, they will be required to make up any deficiencies in these courses over and above the program credits.
The following programs are specifically for Arts students:
The following programs may be taken by students in either Arts or Science:
Students entering one of the Minor or Major concentrations listed below who have successfully completed a course equivalent to MATH 222 (Calculus 3) prior to coming to McGill are given exemption from taking MATH 222, but must replace it with a Complementary Mathematics course in the program of at least 3 credits.
The Minor Concentration Mathematics is offered in two versions: an expandable version, for students who wish to leave open the option of expanding the program into a Major Concentration Mathematics, and a non-expandable version for students who know on entry into the Minor that they do not wish to expand it into a major concentration. The Minor Concentration ...
For more information, see Minor Concentration Mathematics (18 credits).
This Minor concentration is open only to students registered in the Major Concentration Mathematics. Taken together, these two concentrations constitute a program equivalent to the Major in Mathematics offered by the Faculty of Science. No course overlap between the Major Concentration Mathematics and the Supplementary Minor Concentration in Mathematics is ...
For more information, see Supplementary Minor Concentration in Mathematics (18 credits).
The Minor Concentration Statistics is offered only in a non-expandable version, that is, one that cannot be expanded into the Major Concentration Mathematics. The Minor Concentration Statistics may be taken in conjunction with a major concentration in some other discipline under option A of the Multi-track System, or together with the Major Concentration ...

Students who have done well in MATH 242 and MATH 235 at the end of their first term should consider, in consultation with their adviser and the instructors of the courses involved, the possibility of entering into an Honours program in Mathematics, in Applied Mathematics, in Probability and Statistics, or a Joint Honours program in Mathematics and another ...
For more information, see Major Concentration Mathematics (36 credits).
Students who wish to study at the Honours level in two Arts disciplines may apply to combine Joint Honours program components from two Arts disciplines. For a list of available Joint Honours programs, see "Overview of Programs Offered" and "Joint Honours Programs". To remain in the Joint Honours program and receive the Joint Honours degree, a student must ...

Applied Mathematics is a very broad field and students are encouraged to choose a coherent program of complementary courses. Most students specialize in "continuous" or "discrete" applied mathematics, but there are many sensible combinations of courses, and the following informal guidelines should be discussed with the student's adviser. Also, aside from seeking ...

Students may complete this program with a minimum of 72 credits or a maximum of 75 credits depending on whether or not they are exempt from taking COMP 202.
