Math Honors Track

The Department of Mathematics has an active honors program, allowing strong undergraduate students to take four years of honors math courses.  It is not necessary to have honors standing within the College of Arts and Sciences to do the honors math program.

  • Honors Track 1
    • Students that completed Math 1181H and Math 2182H their first year.
    • Requirements for Honors Track 1
    • Schedule for Honors Track 1
  • Honors Track 2 (Recommended for Math PhD Bound Students)
    • Students that completed Math 4181H and Math 4182H their first year.
    • Requirements for Honors Track 2
    • Schedule for Honors Track 2
  • Other Honors Math Tracks
  • Honors Distinction in Mathematics

Students may review the requirements and sample schedule for the Math Honors Track 1 on the Math Honors Track 1 Requirements and Sample Schedule [pdf] handout, and the Math Honors Track 2 on the Math Honors Track 2 Requirements and Sample Schedule [pdf] handout.

Other Honors Math Tracks


Students that wish to complete a specific math track and an honors degree can do so. Students completing a specific track and an honors degree need to complete the track requirements and the following:

  • An honors analysis sequence (1181H-2182H or 4181H-4182H).
  • Four semesters of honors math courses beyond honors calculus.
    • Note that the analysis sequence does not count in this category.
  • Two semesters of abstract algebra (4580-4581 or 5590H-5591H).
  • Two semesters of real analysis (4547-4548 or 4181H-4182H).
