Requirements for the Mathematics Major

The Mathematics Major consists of the following courses:

  • Mathematics 111 (or 105-106), 112, 211, 212, and 215
  • Computer Science 107 or 111
  • Four 300-level Mathematics courses, which must include at least one selected from Mathematics 315, 321, or 331
  • Capstone requirement: In addition to the courses listed above, a 300-level math course from the list of departmentally designated “math capstone courses,” to be taken senior year (unless special permission is granted by the department)
  • One additional elective at the 200-level or above

Students considering graduate study in mathematics are advised to take both Mathematics 321 and 331.

Requirements for the Mathematics Minor

The minor in mathematics consists of six mathematics courses numbered 111 or higher, including at least one course at the 300 level.

Grade Requirements

By College policy, once declaring a major or minor in mathematics, students must take all courses in mathematics using the A–F grading system. To advance to a course with prerequisites, a minimum grade of C– is required for each prerequisite course.
