Don Nelson, program coordinator
Mathematics majors must declare a concentration chosen from Professional Mathematics or Mathematics Education. Students opting the Professional Mathematics concentration will choose from tracks in general mathematics, advanced mathematics, business, statistics, and industrial mathematics.
All courses in the Mathematics major or minor (including supporting coursework) must be completed with a grade of C (2.00) or better. All courses transferred from other institutions for credit in the Mathematics major or minor must carry a grade of C (2.00) or better and be approved by the department chair.
The following specialized courses do not count toward a Mathematics major or minor: MATH 1010 , MATH 1410 , MATH 1420 , MATH 1530 , MATH 1630 , MATH 1710 , MATH 1720 , MATH 1730 , MATH 1810 , and MATH 4010 . However, MATH 1630 , MATH 1730 , MATH 1810 , and may count toward a minor in Mathematics for Managerial, Social, and Life Sciences.
This track is appropriate for students who seek a broad background from such diverse but mutually supportive areas as mathematics, statistics, computer science, and business. The program offers preparation for the job market or for further study in the more specialized areas of actuarial science, operations research, statistics, computer science, or finance.
