2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog


Mathematics, BS

For a student taking a major in mathematics (BS), the recommended sequence for the first four semesters is MATH 10524, MATH 20123 and MATH 20524, MATH 30224 and MATH 30524, MATH 30053. The student should also complete COSC 10403 or COSC 10503 in the first two years.

Students planning to do graduate work in mathematics should work closely with an adviser to plan their upper-division electives.

Credit is not allowed for both MATH 10283 and MATH 10524.
