Students can choose from four different paths to graduation while majoring in Mathematics.
- A BA or BS degree
- Option 1: the traditional math major
- Option 2: the concentrated math major. This option is intended for students who are also interested in taking a focused set of courses in some area outside of mathematics that nevertheless have a minimum mathematical content. In particular, double majors may be interested in the option 2 major in math.
The BA/BS math major page explains the course requirements for the option 1 and 2 majors, and also the differences between them.
- Honors in the Math major also leads to a BA or BS degree in the College of L&S, but with the honors distinction.
- The Applied Mathematics, Engineering and Physics (AMEP) major. This is an interdisciplinary degree program in L&S, with a significant College of Engineering component. It is intended for students who have a strong interest in the combination of Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering.
Students who are interested in the math major certificate are strongly urged to contact an advisor in the Mathematics Department. A list of advisors and their hours can be found on the math advising page.
