Department requirements (42-45 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 majors must offer a minimum of 24 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.

MATH 1201 [3.3] and MATH 1206 [3.4], and MATH 2201. Transfer students may also need to take MATH 1211 - see math department chair.

Mathematics 2001, 2101, and 4201.

Computer and Information Science 1110.


Candidates for a B.S. degree in mathematics must choose one of the following concentrations, a) to c), plus additional courses in the Mathematics Department to bring the total number of credits in advanced courses to 24:

a) Concentration in general mathematics (42 credits)
