For general university requirements, see Graduation Requirements. Students majoring in mathematics may choose between the regular math major and the double major. Regular math majors must complete:
The requirements for the double major are the same except that students may substitute approved mathematics-related courses for up to nine of the 24 hours required at the 300 level or above. At most 3 credit hours from MATH courses numbered 490 to 499 may be applied to the double major.
Students receive advanced placement credit for MATH 101 by achieving a score of four or five on the AP AB-level test and for MATH 101 and 102 by achieving a score of four or five on the BC-level test. Students who have had calculus but have not taken the AP test may petition the department for a waiver of the calculus requirements. Entering students should enroll in the most advanced course commensurate with their background; advice is available from the mathematics faculty during Orientation Week and at other times.
Disclaimer: Official requirements for the BA in Mathematics Degree are posted in the General Announcements on the Registrar's website (available here). Please note that these are the definitive version.
These requirements are in addition to general university graduation requirements. The chair of the undergraduate committee of the MATH department may modify requirements to meet the needs of students with advanced backgrounds. Required courses include:
A total of at least 33 credit hours in MATH (e.g., 11 three-hour courses) at the 300 level or above is required. Students may choose electives to reach this number and at most 3 credit hours from MATH courses numbered 490 to 499
Disclaimer: Official requirements for the BS in Mathematics will be posted in the next edition of the General Announcements on the Registrar's website. Please note that these will be the definitive version.
