Program Requirements
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 permitted.
Note that according to the Faculty of Arts Multitrack System degree requirements, option C, students registered in the Supplementary Minor Concentration in Mathematics must also complete another minor concentration in a discipline other than Mathematics.
For more information about the Multitrack System options please refer to the Faculty of Arts regulations under "Faculty Degree Requirements", "About Program Requirements", and "Departmental Programs".
