The Department offers courses in Mathematics and Statistics leading to a B.Sc. in Mathematics.

The minimal B.Sc. graduation requirement consists of successful completion of four semesters of the Analysis sequence, namely, Mathematics 1030, 2070, 2080, and 2090 and at least four additional semesters of work in any combination of Algebra, Statistics or Applied Mathematics for which the student possesses the appropriate pre- and corequisites. Courses in Statistics may be counted toward a Major concentration in Mathematics.

Students anticipating a Major concentration in Mathematics or considering graduate work in Mathematics should consult the Department at an early stage concerning their choice of undergraduate courses.
