This section specifies the mathematics major discipline requirements only. Please refer to the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts section for information on additional requirements.

Note: Students pursuing a Mathematics major may not also declare a Mathematics extended
minor, a Mathematics minor, or a Mathematics minor (Statistics option).

Declaration requirements

Students admitted to the Bachelor of Science may formally declare a major or minor if they have a minimum CGPA of 2.00 and meet the declaration requirements for the subject discipline. BSc students are expected to declare a major or minor by the time they have completed 60 credits.

Bachelor of Science students wishing to declare a Mathematics major must complete one of MATH 112, MATH 211, MATH 221, or MATH 255/ENGR 255, with a minumum grade of C+, prior to their formal declaration.
