BSc (120 credit hour) Combined Honours in Mathematics and another subject

Students who wish to study Mathematics in conjunction with another subject may wish to pursue a Combined Honours degree program. The other subject may be any discipline from the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Computer Science, or the College of Sustainability. Mathematics may be the primary subject (defined as the subject with the larger number of honours credits), or the secondary subject. Students contemplating a Combined Honours program in Mathematics and another subject should bear in mind, however, that the work in either subject may be insufficient for admission to a regular graduate program.

Students planning to enrol in a Combined Honours program should consult with academic advisors from both programs early in their studies. The same standards and conditions for admission apply as for entry into a Concentrated Honours program (see above). In addition, students must have their program of study approved by Academic Advisors in both subject areas. Students must complete an Honours Qualifying Examination in one of the two subject areas, a requirement normally completed in the primary subject area. For Mathematics, this requirement is satisfied through MATH 4950.03.

Departmental Requirements

Students in a BSc Combined Honours program in Mathematics and another subject must fulfill the requirements outlined in the Academic Regulations and College of Arts and Science Degree Requirements sections.  A combined total of 66 credit hours above the 1000 level must be completed in two subjects, with a minimum of 30 credit hours above the 1000 level in each subject. In addition, students must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours at the 3000 level or above in each of the primary and secondary subjects.

Mathematics as the primary subject

The Mathematics part of a Combined Honours program in Mathematics and another subject will be designed to suit the needs and interests of the student. However, the program must be approved by a Mathematics Honours Advisor and an Honours advisor from the other subject. Students will normally complete MATH 4950.03 Honours Research Project.

Mathematics as the secondary subject

The Mathematics part of a Combined Honours program in Mathematics and another subject will be designed to suit the needs and interests of the student. However, the program must be approved by a Mathematics Honours Advisor and an Honours advisor from the other subject.

Note: Students will not receive credit for taking MATH 1115.03 after receiving credit for MATH 1000.03, MATH 1500X, or MATH 1215.03
