Honours History and Mathematics

Requirements for Students who Enter the Program in 2019-2020 or Later

Admission

Completion of any Level I program and a Grade Point Average of at least 5.0 including a grade of at least C in three units of Level I History, and successful completion of one of MATH 1A03, 1LS3 or 1X03; and one of MATH 1AA3, 1LT3, or 1XX3 with a grade of at least C+ (see Note 7 below).

Notes

  1. When registering, it is recommended that students distribute their required History courses (See Requirements below) as follows:
    – Level II: 12 units of Levels II or III History
    – Level III: 12 units of Levels II or III History
    – Level IV: 3 units of Levels II or III History; 6 units Level IV History. (No combined Honours student may take more than six units of Level IV seminars.)
  2. Students considering a career in teaching are advised to take HISTORY 2T03 and HISTORY 2TT3, as many schools of education require the equivalent of six units in a Canadian history survey course.
  3. Students considering graduate work in History are strongly encouraged to include in their program a second language beyond the introductory level, as many graduate programs require proficiency in a second language.
  4. MATH 1B03 must be completed by the end of Level II.  Completion in Level I is strongly recommended.  It is also recommended that students consider completing MATH 1C03 prior to the end of Level II.
  5. While MATH 1LS3 and 1LT3 may be used for consideration to Level II Mathematics and Statistics programs, students are strongly encouraged to take either MATH 1A03 and 1AA3, or MATH 1X03 and 1XX3, to ensure a sufficient background in content required for MATH 2X03.
