- at least one course chosen from 219, 221, 224, 234, and 235;
Mathematics Requirements for any Interdepartmental Major having Mathematics as a Component:Eight mathematics courses, including Math 113 (or both 110 and 112), 115, 199, and either two courses from List 1 or one from List 1 and one from List 2 below.List 1: Math 325, 330, 332, 336, 340, 432, 436, 448, 480.Advanced placement credit may be used to satisfy at most two of the eight required courses.
List 2: Math 127, 219, 221, 224, 234, 235.
Requirements for Honors:Candidates for honors in mathematics must fulfill the college-wide criteria for honors. In addition, they must have a grade point average of at least 3.5 in mathematics courses numbered 199 and above, complete a two-term honors thesis with a grade of A or A-, and take at least two of the following courses: 330, 432, 436, 448, 480.
Requirements for a Minor in Mathematics:Six courses in the department including
