Summary of Faculty Requirements



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:

Pass one NATS 1000-level course (6 credits). Pass a 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., COSC1540 is not an elective in the Applied Mathematics BA programme.)

Degree Programme Selection:

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

  Specialized Honours          Double Honours(2)          Honours Major
 
               Honours Major/Minor(3)         Ordinary Major 

"Residence" Requirement4, Course Requirements:


Ordinary Degrees:

At least 90 credits must be completed.
30 must be from York University.
"Major" requirement: At least half of the required Major credits must be "in-Faculty"5.
At least 18 must be in courses at the 3000-level or higher. 12 of these 18 must be in the Major.


Honours Degrees:

At least 120 credits must be completed.
30 must be from York University.
"Major" requirement: At least half of each Major's or Minor's required credits must be "in-Faculty"5.
At least 36 credits must be at the 3000-level or higher. 18 of these must be at the 4000-level (of which 12 must be in the Major).



GPA Requirements:

Ordinary: A credit-weighted grade-point average of at least 4.0, over all courses taken, is required to graduate. At most 12 credits may be taken beyond the required 90, to raise the g.p.a above 4.0 (and they must be above the 1000-level).

Honours: An overall c.w.g.p.a. of at least 5.0 must be maintained.


1Not applicable to Double Honours or Honours Major/Minor candidates, unless both subjects are offered by this Department (Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics).

2Choose two different Honours programmes (e.g. Mathematics and Economics, or Mathematics and Statistics).

3Choose one Honours Major and a distinct Honours Minor.

4Requirements that a certain number of your courses must "live" in your Faculty and/or Department.

5See discussion of this phrase under "Information for Majors" near the front of this minicalendar.

MATH1300 3.0 + 1310 3.0
MATH1131 3.01 + 2030 3.01 + 2131 3.01

MATH3131 3.0
MATH3230 3.04
MATH3280 6.0
MATH4280 3.0
9 more 4000-level MATH credits5


Honours Operations Research Stream:

Complete the Common Core (above).
One of: MATH3230 3.04 or 3430 3.0
MATH4170 6.0
6 more 4000-level MATH credits5


Courses required for the Ordinary BA:

[ The "6.0" in the hard copy minicalendar is here corrected to 3.0.]
One of: MATH3230 3.04 or 3430 3.0
MATH3170 6.0


Honours General Stream:

This stream is being phased out (pending approval by the Faculty of Arts). Students already registered in this programme should consult the 1997/98 Minicalendar for their degree requirements.




1MATH2131 has MATH2030 as a prerequisite. MATH2131 will be offered for the first time in 1999/2000. It effectively replaces MATH1132, which was offered for the last time in Winter 1997/98. MATH1131/2030/2131 and MATH2560/2570/2030 are presently interchangeable.

2Or COSC1540 3.0, or six credits from any other computer science course.

3Or MATH3033 3.0.

4Or MATH3034 3.0.

5Note that, in any Honours programme, the Faculty of Arts requires three full courses at the 4000-level. Students must plan ahead (even from first year) to ensure that they have the prerequisites for six more credits at the 4000-level, in MATH or some other subject. One possibility is ECON4500 3.0 + 4510 3.0, which has only ECON1000/1010 as prerequisite.

6This may be replaced by MATH2280 3.0 plus 3 more MATH credits, at the 2000-level or higher.

1In Honours Major or Double Honours only, it is permitted but not recommended to make the following substitutions:
MATH1300+1310 or MATH1013+1014 for MATH1000+1010.
MATH1025 or MATH2221 for MATH2021. MATH2222 for MATH2022.

2Or MATH2010 3.0.

3MATH3010 is not required for any programme except Specialized Honours. A student doing Honours Major or Double Honours can replace MATH2310+3010 by MATH2010 or MATH2015.

4This may be replaced by MATH2560+2570+2030 provided the student averages "B" or better in these latter three.

5A student who may wish subsequently to pursue an Honours degree should consider taking MATH2021+2022 instead.

6Or MATH2010 3.0 or MATH2015 3.0.
