The department of Mathematics & Statistics at Concordia University offers many different __undergraduate programs__, which can be overwhelming at first. Some of the options and terminology are broken down for you below.

Students must complete __90-120 credits__ to earn a Bachelor's degree at Concordia. Programs are available in different streams, each of which differs in the number of mathematics credits required (check out our post on honours vs. specialization __here__).

**Minor (24 credits):**Available for students who are in another discipline (i.e. finance, computer science) and who would like a stronger mathematical background to complement their studies.**Major (42 credits):**General degree with applications to many different fields.**Specialization (60 credits):**More concentrated and intensive than the major.**Honours (66 credits):**Most intensive stream, as it includes two Honours seminars and an Honours thesis in the last year.

All Mathematics & Statistics programs are available as either **Bachelor of Arts** (BA) or **Bachelor of Science** (BSc). For the same program, there is no difference between the BA degree and the BSc in terms of the required mathematics courses. The difference is the electives: BSc students must select some of their electives from the sciences (physics, chemistry, and biology) while BA students are not required to do so.

** Co-op**, which allows students to alternate between study and work terms in industry, is available for some of the Mathematics & Statistics programs.

The Mathematics & Statistics department offers the following programs:

Honours/Specialization in

**Actuarial Mathematics***Specialization in

**Actuarial Mathematics & Finance***Specialization in

**Mathematical and Computational Finance***Honours/Specialization in

**Pure and Applied Mathematics***Honours/Specialization in

**Statistics***Major in

**Mathematics and Statistics**Joint Major in

**Mathematics and Statistics and Computer Applications**(78 credits)Minor in Mathematics and Statistics

**Co-op available*
