Students in this program have the option to complete the Arts & Science Internship Program (ASIP) stream or PEY Co-op.

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 2021-2022 Fall/Winter 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:
MAT257Y1, MAT267H1

Year 2 and Higher Years:

1. 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 Mathematics Specialist program. Students in the VIC program may also use VIC172Y1.

2. MAT327H1

Years 3 and 4:
1. MAT347Y1, MAT354H1, MAT357H1, MAT363H1/​ MAT367H1 ( MAT363H1 can be taken in Year 2, if desired)
2. 2.0 credits of: MAT309H1, MAT351Y1, ANY 400-level APM/MAT
3. 3.0 credits of APM/MAT at the 300+ level, including at least 2.0 credits at the 400-level (these may include options above not already chosen)
4. MAT477H1

1. The Department recommends that PHY151H1 and PHY152H1 be taken in the first year, and that CSC148H1 and STA257H1 be taken during the program. If you do not have a year-long course in programming from high school, the Department strongly recommends that you take CSC108H1 prior to CSC148H1.

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

3. Students may apply to have graduate level math courses count towards their 400-level course requirements.
