Mathematics and Statistics The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers Honours BA and BA degree programs in four major subjects: The degree programs in each major are listed separately. A student should choose one of these majors based on interest and employment goals; but it is possible to change a major provided the requirements of the desired major can be met. For more information, please refer to the department's supplemental calendar. Also see the department's home page on the Web at http://www.math.yorku.ca/. Applied Mathematics BA Programs Program Core All major degree candidates, except for the Honours Minor, must complete the program core:
