Department requirements (45-50 credits)

To enroll in any advanced course in mathematics, students must maintain an average grade of C or higher in all courses previously taken in the department, unless this requirement is waived by the chairperson. A student exempt, without credit, from a course may not take the course later for credit except with permission of the chairperson. Mathematics B.A. majors must complete a minimum of 18 credits in advanced courses for the degree. All mathematics courses offered to satisfy the requirements for a major in mathematics must be completed with a grade of C- or higher. Unless otherwise specified in this bulletin, any mathematics courses used to satisfy a prerequisite for an advanced elective must be completed with a grade of C- or higher.

The department chair, with the approval of the chair of the department's undergraduate curriculum committee, may allow substitutions for one or more of these requirements consistent with the educational goals of the program.
