Frequently Asked Questions - Degree requirements
Return to topic list
For Majors or Honours students, the new CPSC courses [CPSC 110 and CPSC 210] or [CPSC 110 and MATH 210] or the old CPSC courses [CPSC 111 and CPSC 211] or [CPSC 111 and MATH 210]. The old CPSC courses CPSC 111 and CPSC 211 are not offered after 2010W. For minors, there is no computing requirement. Also, some combined programs do not have a computing requirement.
Many Math programs used to require CPSC 111 and one of CPSC 211 or MATH 210. The CPSC courses changed numbers to CPSC 110 and 210 in 2009/2010, but this change was
not immediately reflected in most of the Math program descriptions in the UBC Calendar.
The new requirement, which should be reflected in newer versions of the UBC Calendar, is "one of CPSC 110, 111 and one of CPSC 210, 211, MATH 210".
All BSC degrees in Mathematics require at least 3 credits of first-year Physics. Students who have not taken Physics 12 in high school must take 6 credits. A BA degree in Mathematics does not have this requirement. See the individual program listings for details (Science
Whenever a program's requirements change, students are allowed to satisfy the original requirements or the new ones; see these UBC regulations
. Students may not pick and choose from different versions of program requirements; they must satisfy one complete set of requirements.(ID 44)
