One additional course chosen from

CO 487 Applied Cryptography
CS 440-CS 498
CS 499T Honours Thesis
STAT 440 Computational Inference
CS 600- or 700-level courses
(CS 600- or 700-level courses may be taken only if an equivalent 400-level course does not exist and special permission is obtained from the instructor and a CS undergraduate advisor. Courses in this list may be counted as CS 0.5 units.)

Three additional courses labelled ACTSC, AMATH, CO, PMATH, STAT, excluding the following:

  • Courses with requisites normally excluding Honours CS students
  • Courses cross-listed with a CS course
  • Courses explicitly listed in CS major plans as alternatives to CS courses
  • Readings and Topics courses
  • ACTSC 221, CO 353, CS 380, CS 480
