## BS in Math Requirements

Students looking to complete a BS in mathematics must complete the required courses in the following areas:

For more information speak to a mathematics advisor or see the undergraduate handbook.

### Foundational Course Requirement

The following foundational courses must be completed before acceptance into the major:

- MATH 161: Calculus IA
- MATH 162: Calculus IIA
- MATH 164: Multidimensional Calculus
- MATH 165: Linear Algebra with Differential Equations

Equivalent courses may be substituted for the above requirements:

- MATH 163 for MATH 165
- MATH 171, 172, and 174 for the equivalent MATH 161, 162, and 164
- MATH 173 for MATH 165
- MATH 141-143 for MATH 161-162

AP courses may also be used to satisfy foundational requirements.

### Core Course Requirement

Students must complete the following five courses:

- MATH 235: Linear Algebra*
- MATH 236: Introduction to Algebra I
- MATH 240: Introduction to Topology
- MATH 265: Functions of a Real Variable I
- MATH 282: Introduction to Complex Variables with Applications

An honors version of a course can always be substituted for the listed course.

* The requirement that MATH 235 be taken can also be satisfied by completing MATH 173. MATH 235 should be taken early in the student's major program.

### Advanced Course Requirement

In addition to the core courses, students must complete six 4-credit advanced courses as follows:

- Four advanced mathematics courses*
- Two additional advanced courses with substantial mathematical content

* Any mathematics course numbered 200 or above (excluding core courses) qualifies as an advanced mathematics course.

### Upper Level Writing Requirement

To satisfy the upper level writing requirement, students must pass two upper level writing courses of a certain type.
