What will I learn?

A degree in mathematics should prepare students to enter either graduate studies or the workforce with a skill set that could only come from an intense study of both quantitative reasoning and rigorous proof. This can be accomplished by focusing on the following goals for our undergraduate major:

  • Develop mathematical thinking and communication skills
  • Develop skills with a variety of technological tools
  • Provide a broad view of the mathematical sciences
  • Require study in depth

The required lower division core courses for a mathematics major are Calculus 1, 2, and 3 (MATH 2200,2205,2210), Differential Equations (MATH 2310), Linear Algebra (MATH 2250), and the Math Major Seminar (MATH 2800).

At the upper division, all mathematics majors must take Analysis 1 (MATH 3205), Algebra 1 (MATH 3500) and Introduction to Scientific Computing (MATH 3340). These courses, known as the transition courses, introduce students to the three main areas of mathematics research currently represented in the department.

Every mathematics major must select one two-course sequence (MATH 4200/4205, MATH 4510/4520, or MATH 4340/4440) that builds on the corresponding transition course. This sequence provides the student with an opportunity to study one of these areas in greater depth.

Finally, an additional 12 credits of upper division math courses (3000 and above) are required. It is recommended that these courses be selected to provide a broad view of mathematics.

Two of the math electives may be chosen from a list of approved courses that have significant math content, upon approval by the student’s advisor.
