The following is not intended to be a complete list of the many requirements of which you should be aware. For that, see the main York Calendar and/or an advisor. Moreover, the regulations that apply to you vary according to the year you entered York.

All students must fulfill the following requirements:

General Education Requirements:

  • NATS 1000-level course (6 credits). 9 credit 1000-level HUMA Foundations course, plus a 9 credit 2000-level SOSC Foundations course (or 2000-level HUMA and 1000-level SOSC). (The requirement is different for students who entered York before 1997.)

Elective Courses:

All students majoring in a programme in this Department must take at least 18 credits1 outside the Department which are not required in their programmes. (E.g., COSC 1540 is not an elective in the Applied Mathematics BA programme.)

Degree Programme Selection:

Each student must choose a departmental programme (see the following four Checklist pages and also the section "Programmes"), in which to complete one of the following degrees:

Specialized Honours
Honours Double Major2
Honours Major
Honours Major/Minor3
Ordinary Major
