2 Students interested in discrete mathematics should take MAT2348.
3MAT2362 is strongly recommended and is required for further study of logic.

Students planning to go to graduate school in mathematics must consult the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

The course MAT3153 cannot be counted for credit if you have previously passed MAT4153. You may however take MAT3153 and then subsequently take MAT4153, and count both for credit.

Some 3rd and 4th Year courses are offered alternate year with the French equivalent.

For students registered in the Faculty of Science: If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the credits as follows:
1) 1000-level courses must be replaced with electives;
2) 2000-level courses and above must be replaced with courses from either discipline at the same level or above.

Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at so we may amend your Rabaska audit accordingly.
Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 course credits from the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management.

Co-operative education is available when taken as part of an honours degree.
The extended French stream is available when taken as part of an honours degree.
