Honours BSc Chemistry and Mathematics
The Honours BSc Chemistry and Mathematics program consists of a minimum of 20.0 credits, and all required elements are contained in the following recommended schedule (refer to Note 1):
MA121, MA122; either both MA103 and MA104, or MA110* (refer to Note 7 below)
1.0 elective credit (refer to Note 2)
CH202, CH203, CH212, CH225, CH261, CH262
0.5 senior MA elective credit
0.5 elective credit or MA104 if not taken in Year 1 (refer to Note 7 below)
CH215, CH226, CH250, CH390 (refer to Note 3)
MA215, MA222, MA240, MA242, MA250
0.5 MA elective credit at the 300 or 400 level (excluding MA323).
2.0 CH elective credits at the 300 or 400 level (refer to Note 3)
1.5 additional MA elective credits at the 300 or 400 level (must include MA489 if CH490‡ is not taken)
1.0 elective credits (refer to Note 2)
- While the above schedule constitutes the recommended sequence by
which all program requirements are satisfied, other valid sequences are
possible. However, many of the required courses have one or more
prerequisites and students are advised to be cautious in departing from
the recommended schedule.
- Electives must include 0.5 credits from each of Curriculum
Divisions A and B. These courses must be completed prior to graduation.
- Students who are not planning to enroll in CH490‡ in Year 4 must enroll
in CH390 in Year 3. Students who plan to enroll in CH490‡ in Year 4 are
encouraged to enroll in CH390 in Year 3 but are not required to do so
and may replace CH390 with a 0.5 elective credit.
The program must include at least 1.0 400 level MA credit (including MA489, if taken).
- For progression into Year 2 of the program, the requirements include a
minimum GPA of 4.00 in Year 1 MA courses and a minimum GPA of 4.0 in CH110/CH111.
For progression into Year 3 and Year 4, and for graduation, the
requirements include a minimum cumulative GPA of 4.00 in Chemistry and
Mathematics courses combined and an overall GPA of 4.00.
Senior honours students are expected to attend all department seminars.
- MA110* covers the same calculus topics as MA103, but includes a
number of precalculus topics. Either MA110* or MA103 serves as
prerequisite for MA104. Typically, students do both MA103 and MA104 in Year 1, or MA110* in Year 1 and then MA104 in Year 2.
