Mathematics, Applied (Faculty of Arts)
Applied Mathematics is a very broad field. In addition to developing a sound basis in Applied Mathematics, one of the objectives of the program is to kindle the students' interest in possible areas of application. To develop an appreciation of the diversity of Applied Mathematics, students are advised to develop some depth (e.g., by completing a minor) in a field related to Applied Mathematics such as Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Management, Physics, Physiology, and Psychology.
DETAILED PROGRAM OUTLINE:
Program Requirement:
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 to develop a sound basis in Applied Mathematics, one of the objectives of the program is to kindle the students' interest in possible areas of application. To develop an appreciation of the diversity of Applied Mathematics, students are advised to develop some depth (e.g., by completing a minor) in a field related to Applied Mathematics such as Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Management, Physics, Physiology, and Psychology.
Students may complete this program with a minimum of 60 credits or a maximum of 63 credits depending if they are exempt from MATH 222.
Program Prerequisites
The minimum requirement for entry into the Honours program is that the student has completed with high standing the following courses below or their equivalents:

In particular, MATH 150/151 and MATH 140/222 are considered equivalent.
Students who have not completed and equivalent of MATH 222 on entering the program must consult and academic adviser and take MATH 222 as a required course in the first semester, increasing the total number of program credits from 60 to 63. Students who have successfully completed MATH 150/151 are not required to take MATH 222.
Note: COMP 202—or an equivalent introduction to computer programming course—is a program prerequisite. U0 students may take COMP 202 as a Freshman Science course; new U1 students should take it as an elective in their first semester.
Students who transfer to Honours in Mathematics from other programs will have credits for previous courses assigned, as appropriate, by the Department.
To be awarded the Honours degree, the student must have, at time of graduation, a CGPA of at least 3.00 in the required and complementary Mathematics courses of the program, as well as an overall CGPA of at least 3.00.
Required Courses
(3942 credits)
* Students with limited programming experience should take COMP 202 or equivalent before COMP 250.
** Students select either MATH 251 or MATH 247, but not both.
*** Students who have successfully completed MATH 150/151 or an equivalent of MATH 222 on entering the program are not required to take MATH 222.
