Upper-level required courses

Other Requirements and Recommendations

  • Students interested in graduate study are strongly advised to take MATH 1530 - ADVANCED CALCULUS 1  and MATH 1540 - ADVANCED CALCULUS 2 . These two courses may be substituted for the Applied Analysis and the Differential Equations courses, respectively.
  • A grade of C or higher is necessary in all courses required for the major. A minimum GPA of 2.0 in departmental courses is required for graduation.
  • Students must complete at least one writing-intensive course (W-course) in the major.
  • No course that counts toward the major may be taken on the S/NC basis.
  • Students must complete at least 12 credits in a related area. A minor in Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, or Physics would fulfill this requirement. Speak to the departmental advisor for more options or details.
  • Honors in Applied Mathematics is granted if the student:
    • Completes all requirements for the major
    • Completes the following courses with a letter grade of B or higher:
    • Completes an honors thesis under the direction of a member of the Department of Mathematics faculty, or completes a 2000-level course in lieu of the honors thesis.
