Major and Minor Requirements
Please note: the courses listed below are the new course numbers, as of Fall 2012. See here for a guide to the renumbering.
For depth, students must complete at least one of the four major year-long sequences: Math 135-136 (Real Analysis I/II), Math 145-146 (Abstract Algebra I/II), Math 151-152 (Apps of Advanced Calculus/Nonlinear PDEs), or Math 161-162 (Probability/Statistics). A strong program would include both Math 136 and 146. For breadth, students must either complete a second one of these sequences or else take an additional course chosen from among Math 126 (Numerical Analysis), Math 128 (Numerical Linear Algebra), Math 151, Math 158 (Complex Variables), Math 161, Math 162, Math 167 (Differential Geometry), or Math 168 (Algebraic Topology). Majors are advised to complete Math 42/44 and Math 70/72 by the end of their sophomore year. All of these requirements, including a list of courses in related fields, can be found on the Mathematics Major Concentration Checklist. (Students matriculated before Fall 2012 can complete the mathematics major by fulfilling the requirements produced in the Bulletin of their first year and which can be found on the old Mathematics Major Concentration Checklist.)
Students in the School of Engineering may, with certain exceptions, choose mathematics as a second area of concentration. To do so a student must notify the Dean of Engineering through the Department of Mathematics at least one semester before graduation. The student must complete a program that simultaneously satisfies the conditions for a degree from the School of Engineering and the concentration recommendations of the Department of Mathematics.
Applied Mathematics Major:
Majors must email the related fields advisor (currently Prof. MacLachlan) to request approval of any elective courses taken outside of the Mathematics Department. These requests should include the syllabus (syllabi) for the requested course(s). Students are strongly recommended to obtain written approval from the related fields advisor prior to taking the course(s).
Math courses numbered 61 or above are acceptable electives. With the approval of the Mathematics Department, students may also choose as electives courses with strong mathematical content that are not listed as Math courses. View a sample list of courses that have been approved or disallowed.
