Major Requirements

The department strongly recommends that students pursuing a major or a minor in mathematics complete COSC 101  and COSC 101L  or equivalent.

The requirements for the major are as follows:

Required Courses

Cognate Courses

Two cognate courses representing a field of application interest outside of Mathematics. These two courses 
must count toward a single major in the Natural or Social Sciences preferably taken in two sequential semesters as the intent is to provide an immersive experience with the language, culture, questions, and ways of knowing of another field. The courses need not explicitly use mathematics, rather they provide a basis for communication with experts in that field. Normally, the senior research project (see 6, below) involves a topic related to this field of application.

GPA Requirement

A minimum GPA of 2.00 in the courses chosen to meet the major requirements is necessary to satisfy the major.
