Declaring majors

Please review the information below that outlines the requirements and procedures for declaring majors in the Faculty of Mathematics.

If you have further questions, please contact the relevant academic advisor.

*For the requirements below, MAV (major average) refers to all of your math faculty courses (MATH, ACTSC, CO, CS, STAT, AMATH, PMATH). Note: this is for students who started from Fall 2014 onwards. CAV (cumulative average) refers to all courses taken (math and non-math).

Requirements

  • Be in the co-op program**
  • Submit an application in 2A

** Students in CPA would need to switch to Honours Math/Teaching. Recommend CS students also switch to Honours Math/Teaching.

Difficult for DD students to complete all requirements so not recommended.

Students can do a Major/Teaching degree. Would follow Major course requirements plus some Math/Teaching requirements.

We encourage you to speak with the plan advisor.

See Undergraduate Calendar for more details.
