Math Major Description:
The major in mathematics is designed to enable the student to enter the marketplace (industrial or educational) or to pursue further studies in mathematics or allied fields at the graduate level. Interested students should meet with an advisor in the Department of Mathematics as early as possible for assistance in formulating an appropriate course of study. Students who want to teach mathematics in the secondary schools should consult an advisor in the Center for Advisement and Orientation.
Math Program Prerequisites:  
As a preliminary requirement, students must complete the calculus prerequisite, which may be achieved by any one of the six options.
