All mathematics majors must complete a minimum of 46 credits in mathematics. These credits must include the following courses:
For the Bachelor of Arts degree: A mathematics major must complete a minimum of 11 science credits, distributed in one or any combination of the following fields: biology, geology, environmental sciences, chemistry, and physics.
For the Bachelor of Science degree: A mathematics major must complete a minimum of 24 science credits distributed in one or any combination of the following fields: biology, geology, environmental sciences, chemistry, physics, and computer and information science. These 24 credits must include PHY 241 (or PHY 243) and PHY 242 (or PHY 244). Any courses in computer and information science used to meet this requirement must be courses that satisfy CIS major-field requirements.Recommended Electives for Various Tracks
Prospective mathematics majors should make every effort to complete 100- and 200-level mathematics courses by the end of their sophomore year. Otherwise they may have difficulty in scheduling required advanced courses and electives. Students who decide to major in mathematics should consult an adviser in the Mathematics Department early in the sophomore year to work out a program of advanced courses suited to their career objectives and capabilities. When preparing for this meeting, students should carefully consider the preceding recommendations.Second Major for Computer Science Students
Students in either the CIS or CSC program who choose a concentration in mathematics can, by suitably choosing electives and with a few additional credits in mathematics, complete all mathematics requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in mathematics. See your CIS Department adviser and an adviser in the Mathematics Department for further information.
