## Academic Requirements

Students majoring in mathematics/computer science usually begin with a three-semester calculus sequence: Calculus I, II, and III.

Students seeking placement beyond Calculus I should consult with a member of the faculty. Placement is determined by interviews and transcripts. Precalculus is offered for those lacking the necessary background for Calculus I.

In addition to meeting General Education requirements and other degree requirements, students majoring in mathematics/computer science must complete each of the following requirements. A grade of C- or higher* is required in these courses, excluding the senior project:

**For Students Entering Fall 2024 and Later:**

- MAT 1500, 1510, and 3150/Calculus I, II, and III
- MAT 1520 and 1540/Computer Science I and II
- MAT3120, Discrete Mathematics. Note that this course is a prerequisite for some additional upper level courses taken later in the curriculum.
- MAT 3170/Linear Algebra
- Four upper-level electives (16 credits) in mathematics/computer science. One of the electives may be fulfilled by a tutorial, independent study, learning assistantship, or internship with the approval of the faculty advisor.
- Two science courses (minimum 6–8 credits)
- MAT 3880/Junior Seminar in Mathematics/Computer Science
- MAT 4880/Mathematics Senior Seminar I (MAT 3880 Junior Seminar is prerequisite).
- MAT 4890/Mathematics Senior Seminar II (MAT3880 Junior Seminar is Co-requisite OR MAT4880 Senior Seminar I is prerequisite).
- SPJ 4990/Senior Project I
- SPJ 4991/Senior Project II

***Note:** A minimum grade of C is required in the prerequisite course(s). For example, the prerequisite for MAT 1510 is a minimum grade of C in MAT 1500. This grade minimum is stated in the prerequisite when applicable.

**For students in the program prior to fall 2024 follow these requirements: **

- MAT 1500, 1510, and 3150/Calculus I, II, and III
- MAT 1520 and 1540/Computer Science I and II
- MAT 3170/Linear Algebra
- Five upper-level electives (20 credits) in mathematics/computer science. One of the five electives may be fulfilled by a tutorial, independent study, learning assistantship, or internship with the approval of the faculty advisor.
- Two science courses (minimum 6–8 credits)
- MAT 3880/Junior Seminar in Mathematics/Computer Science
- MAT 4880/Mathematics Senior Seminar I (MAT 3880 Junior Seminar is prerequisite).
- MAT 4890/Mathematics Senior Seminar II (MAT3880 Junior Seminar is Co-requisite OR MAT4880 Senior Seminar I is prerequisite).
- SPJ 4990/Senior Project I
- SPJ 4991/Senior Project II

***Note:** A minimum grade of C is required in the prerequisite course(s). For example, the prerequisite for MAT 1510 is a minimum grade of C in MAT 1500. This grade minimum is stated in the prerequisite when applicable.
