Curriculum Requirements

1. 120 semester hours:

Complete a minimum of 120 semester hours with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better. 

2. General Education Requirement:

Complete the General Education Curriculum  (GEC).

3. Complete 6 hours of calculus-based physics:

Complete 6 hours of calculus-based physics chosen from the following two options:

4. Major requirements:

Complete at least 53 semester hours within the Department of Mathematics and Physics with a minimum grade of “C” in each course.

The 53 hours within the Department consist of:

Mathematics electives:

(Two courses chosen from the applied option or pure option.)

Additional Mathematics electives:

9 credits (3 courses) chosen from any remaining 3000/4000-level courses except MATH 3100 , MATH 4200 , MATH 4940 .

Additional Information:

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.
