Notes


  1. Each student’s program must have the approval of the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences.
  2. Students may substitute MATH 100, MATH 114, MATH 117, MATH 134 or MATH 144 for MATH 154; MATH 101, MATH 115, MATH 118, MATH 136 or MATH 146 for MATH 156; MATH 102 or MATH 127 for MATH 125; MATH 217 for MATH 214; MATH 317 for MATH 215; MATH 227 for MATH 225.
  3. Students presenting MATH 118 must substitute a senior MATH option for MATH 216 .
  4. Credit will not be given for ECON 299 , ECON 386  or ECON 387 .
  5. The ECON 299 prerequisite for ECON 399 is met by STAT 265 and STAT 266.
  6. Students who are considering graduate work in Economics should take ECON 497 .
  7. Students are encouraged to take at least ★6 in ECON, MATH, or STAT in each Fall/Winter of the program.
  8. Credit in SCI 100 will be considered equivalent to MATH 114 , MATH 115 , CMPUT 174 , ★12 Science options (see details of courses ) and ★6 options.
  9. Credit in SCI 151  will be considered equivalent to ★6 Science options.
  10. STAT 161 can be replaced by STAT 151.
  11. 300- and 400-level ECON courses require successful completion of either the Assessment of Reading, Comprehension, and Writings in Economics or ECON 109 . The later course may be used as a junior option in the degree.
