The Mathematics Department offers a large selection of courses in various areas of pure and applied mathematics which require various levels of mathematical sophistical. The Department offers Bachelor of Science (BSC) majors and honours programs in mathematics and in mathematics combined with another subject, such as economics, physics, or computer science.
Students currently in year 2 or beyond wishing to transfer to a BSC majors or honours program in mathematics or in

Selection is based on the average standing in all credits of post-secondary work attempted, with the exception that 12 credits of courses other than MATH courses may be excluded from the calculation. This average is calculated on at least 27 credits, including those courses listed in items 1 to 6 above.
Students who have questions about mathematics programs should consult one of the Mathematics Department advisors, as listed on our advising webpage [ http://www.math.ubc.ca/Ugrad/FAQ/index.shtml ]
