Major and Minor Requirements
Majors are advised to complete Math 42 or 44 and Math 70 or 72 by the end of their second year, and are encouraged to take Math 61 (Discrete Mathematics) or Math 63 (Number Theory) to prepare themselves for the proofs in higher-level mathematics courses. (Math 72 can serve this purpose as well.) Students who aim at graduate school in mathematics are advised to take both Math 136 and Math 146.
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 requirements of the Department of Mathematics.
Applied Mathematics Major:
Majors must email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
