Capstone Experience

Process for Completing the Capstone Experience in Mathematics

Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, senior math majors will no longer satisfy their capstone requirement by taking Math 403.

Instead, senior math majors will satisfy their capstone requirement by taking one of several upper-level courses designated by the math department as “capstone courses.”

As part of the work for these courses, students will conduct an independent project. This project will include writing a paper and giving a public presentation.

The “capstone course” requirement takes the place of the Math 403 requirement; it is in addition to the other course requirements for the math major.
