Effective September 1, 2010, admission to the Five-Year BSc Honors Mathematical Sciences and Bachelor in Education program is discontinued, and the program will be withdrawn effective September 1, 2014.
This five-year program is designed to prepare students to teach Mathematics at the intermediate-senior level. Graduates will earn a BSc or Honors BSc as well as a BEd. Entry into the program is after completion of first year. Students who wish to transfer into this program after their second year must consult with the Associate Dean, Undergraduate and Preservice Programs in the Faculty of Education, and a representative for the program from the Faculty of Science.
The program consists of three parts. First is a Specialization or Honors Specialization offered by the Faculty of Science, chosen from the following list:
- Specialization in Mathematics in Society
- Honors Specialization in Mathematics in Society
- Honors Specialization in Mathematical Sciences (see Applied Mathematics)
- Honors Specialization in Mathematics
Second is the Minor for Concurrent Mathematics and Education Programs module, offered by the Faculty of Education. These two parts form the BSc. The third part is the BEd degree offered by the Faculty of Education.
Students must meet module admission requirements for the chosen Science module and for the Minor for Concurrent Programs. In addition students must be accepted to the Faculty of Education based on their first-year performance and on the completion of a written Experience Profile. The program is of limited size and entry may be on a competitive basis.
