Concentration Requirements MATH.3220 and 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 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. 

Computer Science Requirement

COMP.1010, COMP.1020, COMP.2010

Writing Requirement

ENGL.2290 (Essay Writing for Non-English Majors. Students who have completed other courses with substantial writing requirements, can petition to have that work count as 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
Math/Science/Technology Gen. Ed. requirements are fulfilled by previous requirements.

Bachelor of Science Requirements

A minimum of 74 credits and 20 courses from the offerings of science and mathematics.
Four science lecture courses with co-requisite 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.1120, CHEM.1130, 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.

Double Major

The mathematics and Computer Science departments offer a double major – see the undergraduate coordinator for details.

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.
