To meet the challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities encountered after graduation, mathematics majors are encouraged to obtain a broad but firm foundation in the discipline.
Majors acquire skill in the use of mathematical methods for dealing with problems from a variety of disciplines, and complement these tools with some training in computer science.
The math department offers two disciplinary majors, a B.A. and a B.S., and one disciplinary minor.
Requirements for the Major (B.A.)disciplinary, 11 courses
MATH 135, MATH 204, MATH 232 and MATH 471; CPSC 124; either MATH 331 or MATH 375; two additional Mathematics courses at the 200-level or above; one additional Mathematics courses at the 300-level or above; and two additional courses chosen from Mathematics (MATH 131 and above) and Computer Science (CPSC 220 and above).
Requirements for the Major (B.S.)
disciplinary, 15 courses
MATH 135, MATH 204, MATH 232, MATH 331, MATH 375 and MATH 471; CPSC 124; three additional Mathematics courses at the 200-level or above; one additional Mathematics courses at the 300-level or above; one additional Computer Science course (CPSC 220 and above); and three additional courses in the Natural Science division that count towards the major in their respective departments.
Requirements for the Minor
disciplinary, 5 courses
One course at or above MATH 300 and four additional MATH courses at or above MATH 131.
