McMaster offers a variety of honours degrees in Mathematics and Statistics. These include a core program which allows the student the flexibility to pursue interests in other areas; specializations in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, which encourage the student to create a more focussed program of study; and several joint honours programs.
Entry to any of these programs is either through the Level 1 Mathematics and Statistics, or through any other Level 1 program at the university, provided the student has completed Math 1A03, 1AA3 and 1B03 (with high enough grades). Students who are planning to continue in Math & Stats should enrol in Level 1 Math & Stats as this gives them the dual advantages of courses Math 1X03, 1XX3 and 1C03 targeted to Math & Stats students and complete flexibility in their choice of other courses.
The detailed structure of these programs in years 2 - 4 is outlined in the tables below.
