Simon Fraser University offers a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree with a Major in Applied Mathematics.

  • Students can also complete an Honours degree in Applied Mathematics. Students interested in applied mathematics may also wish to consider the joint honours program in mathematics and computer science, and the mathematical physics honours program, both of which include a substantial number of applied mathematics courses.
  • To enroll in a course offered by the Department of Mathematics, a student must obtain a grade of C- or better in each prerequisite course. Some courses may require higher prerequisite grades. Check the MATH course’s Calendar description for details.
  • Students will not normally be permitted to enroll in any course for which a D grade or lower was obtained in any prerequisite. No student may complete, for further credit, any course offered by the Department of Mathematics which is a prerequisite for a course the student has already completed with a grade of C- or higher, without permission of the department.

FOOTNOTES:

Substitutions for these courses are available at the 400 level at SFU, but Langara has no equivalent courses. They cannot be used to also satisfy Upper Level requirements at SFU.

SFU requires a B grade or higher

SFU strongly recommends that students take MATH 152 for this program

The electives should include SFU W/Q/B requirements. Students should consult an academic advisor to plan the remaining required elective courses.

This course planning outline is created by the Langara Counselling Services and is intended for use only as a guide. It is the students' responsibility to consult original sources to ensure accuracy.
