The Second Major in Mathematics is designed primarily for students whose first major is Chemistry, Computer Science, Physics, or in the Engineering College. However, students with other mathematically intensive majors may be permitted to complete a second major, provided that suitable courses for Section D can be identified. 

University General Education Program (41 hours)

See Graduation from the University  for the University General Education Program requirements.

Note: The following requirements are general education courses that are required for the Mathematical Science Major.:

Second Major in Mathematical Sciences (30 hours):

The requirements in Section A through Section D must be met:

Section A (11 hours)

Section B (4 hours)
