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:
- MTH 121 , MTH 122 , MTH 200 , MTH 220 , MTH 222 (18 credits).
- Option A or B below.
- PHY 243 , PHY 245 (10 credits).
- 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.
- MTH 328 , MTH 329 , MTH 400 , MTH 423 , MTH 456 , MTH 470 (17 credits).
