Senior Seminar 
MATH.3750 and MATH.4750 
Math Electives 
One mathematics courses at the 3000 level or higher (except MATH.3630) 
Concentration Requirement 
MATH.3620 
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 twocourses 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.
Computer Science Requirement
COMP.1010, COMP.1020, COMP.2010, COMP.3010, COMP.4040.
Science Requirements
CHEM.1210, CHEM.1220, CHEM.1230, CHEM.1240, BIOL.1110, BIOL.1120, BIOL.1130, BIOL.1140 plus two biology or chemistry electives
Writing Requirement
ENGL.2290 (Essay Writing for NonEnglish 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.
Students with a joint major in Computer Science should take ENGL.2200 (Oral and Written Communication for CS Majors) rather than ENGL.2290.
General Education Electives (must include at least 6 courses)
3 in Arts & Humanities (AH) and 3 in Social Sciences (SS); one course must satisfy the Diversity (D) requirement and one the Ethics (E) requirement. No more than two courses from a single department can be used to satisfy these Gen Ed requirements. Math/Science Gen ED requirements are fulfilled by the major’s courses.
Computer Science Minor
Successful completion of an appropriate CS course as a free elective satisfies the requirements for a Minor in Computer Science.
Computer Science Major
Successful completion of appropriate Computer Science Courses as free electives will satisfy the requirements for a Major in Computer Science. CS majors must take a course in Ethics in Computer Science.
Advice to Students
Any deviations from this sample program of study require permission of the Mathematics Undergraduate Coordinator or Department Chair. To receive written permission, use an Academic Petition form and keep a copy 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.
Restriction on offcampus study:
Be advised that any course taken at another institution must be
formally approved prior to enrollment. See the
catalog policy for details.
