This is an open enrolment program. A student who has completed 4.0 credits may enrol in the program.
(13.0-13.5 credits, including at least 1.5 credits at the 400-level)
The Specialist Program in Applied Mathematics is directed toward students who hope to pursue applied mathematical research as a career.
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 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 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 program. Students in the VIC program may also use VIC172Y1.
Years 3 and 4:
1. MAT351Y1, MAT327H1, MAT347Y1, MAT354H1, MAT357H1, MAT363H1/ MAT367H1 ( MAT363H1 can be taken in the second year, if desired), STA347H1
2. At least 1.5 credits chosen from: MAT332H1, MAT344H1, MAT454H1, MAT457H1, MAT458H1, MAT464H1, STA302H1, STA457H1, CSC336H1, CSC436H1, CSC446H1, CSC456H1
3. 1.0 credit from: APM421H1, APM426H1, APM441H1, APM446H1, APM461H1, APM462H1, APM466H1
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.
