Advanced placement credit may be used to satisfy at most two of the twelve required math courses.
It is also recommended that two courses with substantial mathematical content be taken outside the department. Mathematics majors considering graduate work are recommended to take one of French, German, or Russian as a foreign language. Mathematics majors considering applying to a master’s program in teaching are advised to incorporate MTH 128, MTH 224, and Computer Science into their undergraduate program.
Requirements for Honors in Math:
Candidates for honors in mathematics or in any interdisciplinary program of which mathematics is a part must fulfill the college-wide criteria for honors. In addition, they must have a grade point average of at least 3.5 in courses in the mathematics department numbered 199 and above, take at least two non-thesis MTH courses at the 400-level, and either complete a two-term honors thesis in the mathematics department with a grade of A or A-, or complete a one-term honors thesis in the mathematics department with a grade of A or A- and take an additional 400-level MTH course taht does not satisfy the WS requirement.
