Mathematics Major

Mathematics permeates every aspect of our daily lives. In support of this, the mathematics curriculum is designed to provide a strong foundation for anyone who is interested in developing their ability to navigate our increasingly quantitative society. All students are introduced to the power and breadth of mathematics and to core ideas and techniques in the discipline. Courses that emphasize written and oral communication of quantitative information increase the value to the student of this mathematical knowledge.

The flexible curriculum enables each student to focus on a particular area of interest. This flexibility is especially important given the widely varying interests and career goals of our students. Students planning on a career in a technical field may choose to focus on courses in applied mathematics. Those planning on graduate school in mathematics or in a closely related field will benefit from the more advanced elective courses needed for graduate-level studies. Those interested in law, business, teaching, or other pursuits have the opportunity to freely sample from all areas according to their interests.

A Bachelor of Arts with a major in mathematics is offered and supervised by the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). Students opting for this degree require an advisor from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Refer to the CAS section of this catalogue for more information.


Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences (Majoring in Mathematics) or the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Data Science are subject to the Academic Standards in CEMS outlined in this catalogue.

Additional Regulations

No more than three grades of D, D+, or D– in 3000-level (or higher) mathematics (MATH) courses may be used to satisfy “Major Courses” requirements.
