Tracks within Mathematics, Minors, and Double Majors
There are a variety of ways to tailor your degree program to your personal career goal. For instance, if you wish to build a program in mathematical and applied statistics, you could do the Bachelor of Science program with a minor in statistics. The minor in statistics consists of ST 3123, ST 4111, ST 4213, one of ST 4523 or ST 4543, and two other statistics courses at the 4000 level. Because not all 4000-level statistics courses count toward the minor, the student should consult the minor statistics advisor.
Many students complete double majors. It is possible for a student to double major in Mathematics and any other discipline, but the student needs to be aware that a double major in Mathematics and a discipline that is not in the College of Arts and Sciences can be difficult because of the different core requirements in the two different colleges. There is a special program for a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science that reduces some of the requirements. A check sheet for this program can be obtained from the undergraduate coordinator.
A student in a field other than mathematics may minor in mathematics. The minor in mathematics consists of MA 1713, MA 1723, MA 2733, MA 2743, MA 3113, MA 3253, and six more MA hours numbers at the 3000 level or above.
