(b) Two FCE Science electives
(c) One FCE from English 1011, 1031, 1111, 1112 (it is recommended that at least one be from 1011, 1031), or one FCE from Group I or Group II, excluding Mathematics, approved by the Department (see Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities Regulations, First Year Arts Program Grouping Requirements)

(a) Mathematics Option

First Year:

(b) Mathematics of Computing, Co-op Option

Departmental recommendations for work-term placements will be made in the first week of each academic term which preceeds a work term, and will be based on performance in the program to that point. Note that the first work period is optional, but a student must obtain a positive recommendation from the department by the first required work term to remain registered in the program.

The University will provide employment counselling and contacts with participating employers for each student, prior to each work period, and will make all reasonable effort to obtain placement. However, the achievement of employment is the result of a resumé and interview process similar to that required for permanent employment of any professional. The ultimate success in placement depends on the employer/employee interaction.

6. Concurrent Programs with Education

A. The Honours BSc (Mathematics) degree is offered concurrently with a Bachelor of Education degree. Prior to the Professional Year, students should follow the HBSc program requirements; however, they should also include the prior to entry into the Professional Year requirements of the Primary-Junior, Junior-Intermediate, or Intermediate-Senior Specializations, as listed on pages 70-71. For more information about concurrent programs, see the Faculty of Education, Department of Undergraduate Studies in Education, starting on page 65.
Note:
For students in concurrent honours bachelor degree programs, 1.5 FCEs of required Education courses will be taken instead of electives in the HBSc program, prior to entering the Professional Year.

B. The BSc (Mathematics) 3-year degree is offered concurrently with a Bachelor of Education degree. For more information about the concurrent bachelor degree programs, see the Faculty of Education, Department of Undergraduate Studies in Education, starting on page 65.


7. Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences

See Faculty of Graduate Studies, Graduate Programs offered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences, page 323.
