Return to Program Requirements Return to: Program Requirements

This program is designed for the student who wants to study mathematics in some depth as preparation for graduate school or a career in mathematics or a related field.

It is recommended that the general education requirements be completed in the first two years.

Requirements. Completion of at least 124 credits, including:

  1. MTH 121 , MTH 122 , MTH 200 , MTH 220 , MTH 222  (18 credits).
  2. Option A or B below.
  3. PHY 243 , PHY 245  (10 credits).
  4. All requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS)  Bachelor of Science degree, including general education requirements  .

Option A, Abstract Mathematics

This option is recommended for the student who plans to go on to graduate school in mathematics or a related field. The emphasis of the option is on abstract, rigorous mathematics and on the development of the student’s analytical and creative talents.

Requirements, Option A.

  1. MTH 328 , MTH 329 , MTH 402 , MTH 423 , MTH 456 , MTH 470  (19 credits).
  2. Four additional courses in mathematics, selected from: MTH 305 , MTH 327 , MTH 331 , MTH 333 , MTH 354 , MTH 357 , MTH 362 , MTH 372 , MTH 374 , MTH 375 , MTH 377 , MTH 378 , MTH 385 , MTH 392 , MTH 422  (12 credits).
