1The 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.

2Students must select as an elective at least one course from each of the following sets: (1) Applied Set: MATH 310 MATH 320 MATH 341 MATH 360 MATH 361 , MATH 368 , MATH 371 ; (2) Analysis Set: MATH 446 MATH 460 MATH 461 ; (3) Algebra Set: MATH 346 MATH 448 . Students are encouraged to take their applied math elective in the second year.

3Students must complete either 30 credits in a separate discipline or 15 credits in two distinct majors from different departments.  These courses must count towards a major or minor in the respective discipline.

Mathematics majors are required to take the Math Major Field Test in order to graduate.
