Current UMass Lowell students should use their Advisement Report in SIS. If you need assistance, please contact your advisor. Course selections are subject to restrictions.
Mathematics Requirements
The following courses cannot be used as Electives:
No more than 60 Math credits can be counted toward the degree.
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). 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 Requirement
Mathematics Concentrations
In addition to the general Mathematics (No Concentration) Major, six concentrations are available: Applied/Computational Mathematics, Bioinformatics, Business Applications, Computer Science, Probability/Statistics and Teaching. Interested students should check requirements with his/her adviser or with the undergraduate coordinator. To have a concentration appear on the transcript the Registrar must be notified.
Advice to Students
Any 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.
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.
