DescriptionThe Honors in Mathematics program exposes you to the underlying beauty of mathematics. It will appeal to you if you are fascinated by abstraction, logic, symmetry, and studying mathematics for the sake of mathematics itself. Most pure mathematicians find employment in universities and research institutions, although an increasing number also branch out into commercial sectors such as finance and the computer industry. Mathematics can also be taken as part of a BSc General or BSc with Specialization degree.

The Bachelor of Science Honors degree provides excellent training in one specific subject. As an Honors student, you will focus on one main field of study and must maintain a higher standard of academic achievement than students in a General or Specialization program. This is the best program if you plan to pursue a higher degree or a research-based or academic career.
