Students majoring in mathematics may choose from several areas of concentration. Each concentration requires the following lower division mathematics courses (totaling 22 sem. hrs.): MATH 1550  (or MATH 1551 ), MATH 1552  (or MATH 1553 ), MATH 2057  (or MATH 2058 ), MATH 2060  (or EXST 3201 ), MATH 2085 , and two courses from MATH 2020 , MATH 2025 , MATH 2030 . Each concentration requires additional courses (see recommended paths) and a capstone experience. Credit for mathematics courses numbered below 1550 will not be counted toward the required credits for mathematics majors.

Those students who are planning to pursue a graduate degree in mathematics are strongly advised to include MATH 4031 , MATH 4032 , MATH 4035 , MATH 4153 , and MATH 4200  in their curriculum even if they do not select the mathematics area of concentration.

Honors courses offered in mathematics are MATH 1551 , MATH 1553 , and MATH 2058 . The honors option is available to students in upper division mathematics courses. (See “Honors Option ” in the “Honors College ” section in this catalog.) A special curriculum leading to the BS degree in mathematics with departmental honors is offered. Details are available from the departmental office.

No student may receive more than nine semester hours of credit in mathematics courses numbered below 1550, with the exception of students who are pursuing the elementary education degree and following the 12 hour sequence specified in that curriculum. No student who has already received credit for a mathematics course numbered 1550 or above may be registered in a mathematics course numbered below 1550, unless given special permission by the Department of Mathematics.
