Modules in Other Departments
Honours students in Mathematics (MAM4000W) and Applied Mathematics (MAM4001W) may sometimes take some modules in other departments.
- In general, Applied Mathematics students have more flexibility than Mathematics students, and Mathematics students will only be allowed to take non-MAM modules that have nontrivial mathematical content.
- You must get permission from the MAM Honours Program Convenor for each module in another department that you wish to take.
- You must also, of course, get permission from the department that owns the module.
Below is a list of some non-MAM modules that MAM Honours students have taken in recent years, and how many credits each module was worth in the MAM Honours Program. This list is for informational purposes only and is not to be read as "modules you are allowed to take". We encourage Honours students to take modules that they are interested in in other departments, especially if they complement those they are taking in MAM and help to build a coherent and focussed program of study. Permission to take a module in another department will not be unreasonably withheld. But the MAM Honours Convenor has the final decision whether to allow you to take non-MAM modules, and how many credits each is worth.
