Courses
Our full list of courses is below, and there are also packages of courses available for students with particular interests or needs:
Planning a course program can be challenging. It is important that students enroll in the courses most appropriate to their overall goals and abilities, as well as completing their required mathematics prerequisites.
It is strongly recommended that students contact us for advice when planning their course program.

*Special topics courses vary each semester, and many honours students take several such courses. Students are encouraged to attend the informational meeting at 10:00 am in JD 35 on the first Monday of the term.
Special topic courses are offered subject to staff availability and student demand. They are generally advanced fourth year courses with third year courses as prerequisites. Information on choice, availability, timetabling, etc, is provided at a meeting held at 10am on the first Monday of each semester in room G35, building 27. For a list of reading courses & special topics courses offered in previous years please visit the archive page.
