## Major in Mathematics

REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS WHO ENROLLED IN CAS FALL 2014 OR LATER

The requirements for the mathematics major are thirteen courses numbered MATH-UA 120 or higher which must include the following Calculus Requirements, Analysis and Algebra Requirements, and Other Requirements.

**Calculus Requirements**

NOTE: Students who have taken Math for Economics for an Economics major or intended major can use the MATH-UA 211, 212, and 213 Math for Economics I - III sequence towards the math major requirements instead of MATH-UA 121, 122 and 123 Calculus I - III sequence. You will have to get this approved by the Math Department. All other students must use the Calculus sequence. If you have any questions regarding this requirement please contact the Math Department.

**Analysis and Algebra Requirements**

Other Requirements

- The rest of the 13 required courses must include at least three of the following:
- The remaining four courses can be any mathematics courses numbered MATH-UA 120 or higher, except MATH-UA 211, 212, 213, or 270.

Additional Guidelines

In addition to the above requirements, the following guidelines must be observed:

- Any two computer science courses (numbered CSCI-UA 101 or higher, except CSCI-UA 380) or graduate data science DS-GA courses may be credited toward the 13 course requirement. The prerequisites for DS-GA courses are Calculus III, Linear Algebra, and programming experience in Python (preferred) or MATLAB. Probability is useful, but not a required course prerequisite.
- Students enrolled in and who complete the Premedical or Predental Program and who wish to major in mathematics may substitute at most two math classes by any two of the following; General Physics I and II (PHYS-UA 11 and 12) or Physics I, II (PHYS-UA 100 and 101) toward their 13 course requirement. However, if these physics courses are used towards the
**mathematics**major, the computer sciences or data science courses will not apply towards the major. - Students may double-count no more than two courses towards both the Mathematics Major and the requirements of another major or minor.
- Students may petition to enroll in graduate mathematics courses and apply them to the undergraduate major. Usually, permission to enroll is not granted until the student has completed MATH-UA 325 Analysis and the available undergraduate courses on the same topic.
- Courses taken under the pass/fail option are not counted toward the major.
- A grade of C or better is required in all courses used to fulfill the major requirement.

REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS WHO ENROLLED IN CAS FALL 2012 - SUMMER 2014

The requirements for the mathematics major are twelve courses numbered MATH-UA 120 or higher which must include:

- EITHER, the following three courses:
- OR, the following two courses::
- The rest of the 12 required courses must include two of the following:
- The remaining four courses can be any mathematics courses numbered MATH-UA 120 or higher, except MATH-UA 125, 211, 212, 213 or 246.

- Any two computer science courses numbered CSCI-UA 101 or higher, except CSCI-UA 380, may be credited toward the 12 course requirement.
- Students enrolled in and who complete the Premedical or Predental Program and who wish to major in mathematics may substitute at most two math classes by any two of the following; General Physics I and II (PHYS-UA 11 and 12) or Physics I, II (PHYS-UA 100 and 101) toward their 12 course requirement. However, if these physics courses are used towards the mathematics major, the computer sciences courses will not apply towards the major.
