Mathematics majors are encouraged to tailor the program to their career objectives by making judicious choice of the electives in requirement (c) above and by taking courses in the department beyond the required minimum 53 hours.
Students planning to do graduate work in mathematics should include as many of the following courses in their program as possible: MATH 3410, MATH 4320, MATH 3420, and MATH 4220. Graduate schools find students who exceed the 53-hour minimum more attractive.
Students planning to work in industry or government should strongly consider the Computational and Engineering Mathematics (CEMA) Concentration. Employers find students who exceed the 53 hour minimum more attractive.
