Mathematics Major

11 courses distributed as follows:

Each senior mathematics major must also enroll in the year-long MATH 497 Senior Seminar.

A working knowledge of a high-level computer language such as Python or Java is strongly recommended. Those preparing for graduate studies in mathematics should try to take MATH 320 Algebra, MATH 350 Real Analysis, MATH 230 Multivariable Calculus, and MATH 260 Differential Equations.

Senior Capstone Experience

The Senior Capstone Experience for the mathematics major consists of an undergraduate research portfolio and participation in two semesters of the Senior Seminar course. MATH 497 Senior Seminar is a non-credit course that meets biweekly to guide students through the process of developing a senior undergraduate research project. The undergraduate research portfolio consists of the senior project and any other research projects completed by the student outside of regular course work. The grade for the Senior Capstone Experience is based on the portfolio and an oral presentation of the senior project.
