Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Colleges, Departments, and Programs

The mathematics program is designed to provide a solid foundation in the theoretical and applied aspects of mathematics necessary for a variety of professional careers. The flexibility within the third and fourth years is established to enable mathematics majors to concentrate in areas of their interest. Students can choose their curricula so as to emphasize that role of mathematics which will be useful to them in later years, whether in K-12 school teaching, graduate school, a career in the public or private sector, a career in industry, or graduate study in areas that emphasize math, such as economics and the sciences.

In addition to the required mathematics core courses including Math US-5A and 5B, students must take 9 credits of Mathematics electives at the 300 level or higher.

All math courses counting for the major must be completed with a C- or higher.
