The major in mathematics is designed to enable the student to enter the marketplace (industrial or educational) or to pursue further studies in mathematics or allied fields at the graduate level. Interested students are urged to contact the Department of Mathematics as early as possible. The student will be assigned an advisor who will work with the student to develop an appropriate course of study.

All students must take the following three courses:

* These courses are offered infrequently, subject to student demand.

** Students may use the combination of MTH 3120 and MTH 4119 in the place of MTH 4120 as elective credit toward the major. MTH 4119 must be completed as an independent study (please consult the Department of Mathematics).

Students are expected to complete the major requirements in place at the time they are officially accepted into their programs. Please review the College Bulletin for the relevant academic year.
