# Curriculum Overview

The Mathematical Sciences major is divided into four tracks: Pure Mathematics (PMAS), Applied Mathematics (AMAS), Statistics (STAT), and Business Analytics (BA). The distribution of Academic Units (AU) varies between the different tracks.

Course Type | Academic Units (AU) | |||
---|---|---|---|---|

PMAS | AMAS | STAT | BA | |

Core Courses | 45 | 45 | 45 | 37 |

Track Core | 7 | 7 | 8 | 13 |

Prescribed Electives for chosen TrackChoose one of the two options:
AU figures for the PI option are shown in parentheses.
| 24 (19) | 24 (19) | 23 (18) | 26 (21) |

Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core: Common Core | 17 | |||

Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core: Foundational Core | 10 (15) | |||

Broadening and Deepening Electives (BDE)Can take BDEs offered by any School. | 26 | |||

Total | 129 AU |

Notes:

- AU figures in parentheses (x) indicate the number of AU if the option with PI is selected.
- A grade of A- or better in the Final Year Project (MH4900) is required to be eligible for Honours (Highest Distinction).
- Students who do not take the Final Year Project can opt to do either Professional Internship (MH4912) or Professional Attachment (MH4913).
- To satisfy the major with a Concentration in the Mathematics of Information and Communication, in addition to the above major requirements, a student must pass four courses in the Mathematics of Information and Communication List.
- To satisfy the major with a Concentration in Computational Mathematics, in addition to the above major requirements, a student must pass four courses in the Computational Mathematics List.
- All core and track core courses
**cannot**be mapped to exchange courses. A maximum of**three**Major Prescribed Electives can be mapped to exchange courses. Please refer to this page for more information.
