​Mathematics Major​​

This option allows you to specialize, or to acquire a broad background, in mathematics by selecting from various areas o​f mathematics such as linear algebra, abstract algebra, analysis, applied mathematics, differential equations, geometry, history of mathematics, number theory, numerical analysis, and probability & statistics.

​Program Description

The Mathematics Major consists of at least 40 credits:
  1. Math 120, 121, 213, 222, 300. We strongly recommend that you complete 213 and 300 before you enroll in any courses numbered above 300.


  2. Take 4 courses from the following groups, to provide greater depth in at least one area:

    1. Algebra: Math 330, 331
    2. Analysis: Math 324, 327
    3. Probability and statistics: Math 356, 357


  3. Complete either 3a or 3b below (9 or 10 additional credits):

    1. Take three courses selected from Math 305, 310, 315, 320, 323, 324, 327, 330, 331, 335, 356, 357, 360, 367, 372, 468
    2. Take two courses selected from Math 305, 310, 315, 320, 323, 324, 327, 330, 331, 335, 356, 357, 360, 367, 372, 468, and 3 or 4 credits from Math 380, 390, 395, 499

To have the Mathematics Major approved for graduation, you must have a minimum grade point average of 2.00 in the math courses you select to satisfy the requirements of the major. In addition, you must achieve a grade of C or better in at least 15 credits in required courses numbered 300 or above. These standards apply regardless of a declaration of academic bankruptcy. The department chair may allow exceptions on a conditional basis.​
