Enrolment Requirements

This is an open enrolment program. A student who has completed 4.0 credits may enrol in the program.

Completion Requirements

(7.5 credits, including 2.5 credits at the 300+ level, of which one 0.5 credit must be at the 400-level).

Note: September 2021 or January 2022 will be the last opportunity for Faculty of Arts & Science students to register for PEY Co-op. Students in Year 3 in the Fall/Winter 2021-2022 session will be the last group of Faculty of Arts & Science students eligible to participate in PEY Co-op. Students starting Year 2 in Fall 2021 or later will only be eligible to participate in the Arts & Science Internship Program stream.

Year 2:
MAT235Y1/​ MAT237Y1/​ MAT257Y1, MAT244H1, MAT246H1

Note: MAT224H1 may be taken in first year

Year 2 and Higher Years:
0.5 credit with a significant emphasis on ethics and social responsibility: ANT100Y1/​ ANT253H1/​ CSC300H1/​ EEB215H1/​ ENT200H1/​ ENV100H1/​ ENV200H1/​ ENV333H1/​ ESS205H1/​ ETH201H1/​ ETH210H1/​ ETH220H1/​ FOR200H1/​ HMB203H1/​ HPS200H1/​ HPS250H1/​ HPS301H1/​ HST209H1/​ IMC200H1/​ JPH441H1/​ PHL240H1/​ PHL244H1/​ PHL265H1/​ PHL271H1/​ PHL273H1/​ PHL275H1/​ PHL281H1/​ PHL295H1 or another 0.5 credit course approved by the Department.

Note: Students may use the CR/NCR option with this 0.5 credit course and have it count toward the program. Students in the VIC program may use VIC172Y1.

Higher Years:
1. MAT301H1, MAT309H1/​ MAT315H1, MAT334H1
2. Additional 0.5 credit at the 200+ level from: ACT240H1/​ ACT230H1/​ APM236H1, MAT309H1/​ MAT315H1/​ MAT335H1/​ MAT337H1, STA247H1/​ STA257H1
3. Additional 0.5 credit at the 300+ level from: APM346H1, APM462H1, MAT309H1, MAT315H1, MAT332H1/​ MAT344H1, MAT335H1, MAT337H1, MAT363H1, MAT475H1, HPS390H1, HPS391H1, PSL432H1
4. MAT401H1/​ MAT402H1 or any other MAT/APM 400-level course


1. Students using MAT157Y1 towards the first year program requirements must replace the exclusion course MAT246H1 with a different 0.5 credit MAT/APM course at the 200+ level.

2. In the major program, higher level courses within the same topic are acceptable substitutions. With a judicious choice of courses, usually including introductory computer science, students can fulfill the requirements for a double major in mathematics and one of several other disciplines.

3. Students planning to take specific 400-level courses should ensure that they have the necessary prerequisites.

4. Students interested in becoming K-12 teachers should consider applying to the combined degree program --- a six-year program that leads to an Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc) from the University of Toronto and a Master of Teaching (MT) from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). The HBSc part of this program involves completing a Math Major, a Minor in Education and Society (offered by Victoria College) and a Minor in an area that would lead to a second "teachable" subject. Please see the Victoria College website for more information.
