Senior Seminar MATH.3750 and MATH.4750
Math Electives Three mathematics courses at the 3000 level or higher (except MATH.3630)
Note: None of the above courses can be used to satisfy two different requirements. MATH.3050 and MATH.5030 cannot both be used to satisfy the two-courses Analysis requirement.

The following courses cannot be used as Electives:

  • MATH.1110 Quantitative Reasoning
  • MATH.1210 Management Pre-calculus
  • MATH.1220 Management Calculus
  • MATH.1270 Preparation for Calculus
  • MATH.1510 Explorations in Math
  • MATH.1830 Introduction to Statistics
  • MATH.2830 Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences¬†
  • MATH.3630 Intro to Data Analysis

No more than 60 Math credits can be counted toward the degree. 

Non-Mathematics Concentration

An approved 18-credit-hour (six-course) concentration outside the Division of Sciences. These courses may lead to a minor or may cross departments. This concentration must be planned as a unified, coherent whole rather than a series of unrelated courses and must be approved by the mathematics undergraduate coordinator or department chair.

Science Requirement

At least three science courses from among the offerings approved for science majors, including two courses with co-requisite laboratories from outside the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

Computing Requirement

COMP.1010 (Computing I) or MATH.5760 (Statistical Programming Using SAS) or another computer programming class as approved by the Undergraduate Coordinator or Department Chair.

Writing Requirement

ENGL.2290 (Essay Writing for Non-English Majors). Student who have completed other courses with substantial writing components can petition to have that work satisfy the mathematics writing requirement.

General Education Requirement

College Writing ENGL.1010 and ENGL.1020
Arts & Humanities (AH) Three courses, not all from a single department
Social Sciences (SS) Three courses, not all from a single department
Diversity (D) One course
Ethics (E) One course
The Math Gen ED requirement is fulfilled by previous requirements.

Note: Deviations from this sample program of study require permission of the Mathematics Department Chair or Undergraduate Coordinator. To receive written permission, use a Student Exception form and keep a copy for your own files.

Restriction on off-campus study:

Be advised that any course taken at another institution must be formally approved prior to enrollment. See the catalog policy for details.
