Additional Free Electives 3
Select 15-27 credit hours of additional free Electives
Carryover from Area A2 (1) if MATH 1113 is taken in Area A2
Total Credit Hours124

Other Program Requirements

A minimum grade of “C” is required for each CSCI, MATH, and STAT course taken in the major. This applies to all courses (lower and upper division). The mathematics major may not subsequently take for credit toward graduation a lower level MATH or STAT course after earning credit hour for a course that has the lower level course as a prerequisite (except by advisor’s permission).

Honors in Mathematical Sciences

To graduate with Honors in Mathematical Sciences, a student must:

  • be admitted to the University Honors Program at least three semesters prior to graduation;
  • successfully complete Honors Research (MATH   4825) for two semesters and Honors Thesis (MATH   4929) for a total of six credit hours;
  • be in good standing in the University Honors Program at the time of graduation.

Note: Students earning the B.S. with a major in Mathematical Sciences and “Honors in Mathematical Sciences” may use the six credit hours earned through Honors Research (MATH   4825) and Honors Thesis (MATH   4929) as part of the Mathematics Electives. Therefore, these students will select four courses instead of six courses from the Mathematics Electives.
