Total: 126 Credits

1Electives for Mathematics majors: Major electives are selected from Mathematics courses numbered above MATH 300; also PHYS 350 , PHYS 351 , CMPS 362  or CMPS 364 . A student must select as an elective at least one of MATH 447  or MATH 449  , and at least one course from each of the following three sets: (1) Analysis Set: MATH 447 , MATH 460 , MATH 461 ; (2) Algebra/Geometry Set: MATH 345 ,

 , MATH 449 ; (3) Applied Set: MATH 310 , MATH 341 , MATH 360 , MATH 361 . Most Mathematics electives are offered every other year. Check with the department chair for the current schedule.

2Cognate electives must be used to complete a minor, a concentration, a second major, secondary-education certification, or a package of courses pre-approved by the department.

The results of the placement tests administered during freshman orientation assist students and their advisors in choosing the proper beginning-level mathematics sequence and the proper entry-level within that sequence. If a course is a prerequisite for a second course, directly or indirectly, and a student receives credit for the second course then that student will not be allowed to register for the prerequisite course. Mathematics majors are required to take the Math Major Field Test in order to graduate.

3 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100  and C/IL 102 -C/IL 104 .  In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
