Note: None of the above courses can be used to satisfy two different requirements. MATH.4030 and MATH.5010 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 Precalculus 
  • MATH.1220 Management Calculus
  • MATH.1270 Preparation for Calculus
  • MATH.1510 Explorations in Math 
  • MATH.2830 Introduction to Statistics 
  • MATH.3630 Intro to Data Analysis

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

Computing Requirement

COMP.1010 (Computing I)

Writing Requirement

ENGL.2290 (Essay Writing for Non-English Majors). If a student has completed other courses with substantial writing requirements, he/she 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

Advice to Students

If you plan any deviations from this sample program of study, use a Student Exception form signed by the Mathematics Department Chair or Undergraduate Coordinator to receive written permission. Keep a copy of any signed Academic Petition for your own files.

Bachelor of Science Requirements

A minimum of 74 credits and 20 courses from the offerings of science and mathematics.

Four science lecture courses with corequisite labs, including a two semester sequence in a department other than Mathematics — COMP.1010 (Computing I), COMP.1020 (Computing II), MATH.2310/2320 (Calculus III & Math Lab I) and MATH.2360 (Engineering Diff Eqns) qualify. If you use math courses to fulfill lab science requirements, you will have to take additional science elective courses to satisfy the requirement of 74 science credits. The following courses CANNOT be used to fulfill science requirements: CHEM.1010, CHEM.1110, CHEM.1130, CHEM.1120, CHEM.1140, ATMO.1020, ATMO.1200, ATMO.1410, ENVI.1010, ENVI.1020, ENVI.1150, GEOL.1010, COMP.1110, COMP.1130, COMP.1140, COMP.1150, COMP.2110, PHYS.1210, PHYS.1210, RADI.1010, RADI.1020.
