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.
