Sample Schedule

Planning your four year schedule as a mathematics major.

Each student's course work will vary accourding to credits taken in high school, ability level, individual preference, and career goals. The following represents a typical schedule. Well-prepared students can begin at a more advanced level. The mathematics major requires two upper-division year-long sequences and an additional upper-division course.

Students thinking of majoring or minoring in mathematics should contact the department as soon as possible, even if they are not ready to formally declare a major.

Mathematics (B.A.) Typical course of study:

In thinking about a schedule of classes it is useful to look at how often classes are typically taught and when they will be available.

The upper division math sequences offered every year:

  • MATH 3550-4550/4570 - Differential Equations
  • MATH 3850-4800/4840/4870 - Probability and Statistics
  • MATH 4110-4120 - Algebra
  • MATH 4210-4220 - Analysis
  • MATH 4310-4320 - Complex Variables

Other upper division math courses that are not part of the sequences but are routinely offered at least every other year:

  • MATH 3110 - Linear Algebra For Engineers
  • MATH 3270 - Advanced Math For Engineers
  • MATH 3810 - Probability and Statistics For Engineers
  • MATH 4050 - History of Math
  • MATH 4410 - Foundations of Geometry
  • MATH 4430- Non-Euclidean Geometry
  • MATH 4650- Cryptography

The graduate math sequences are offered every year:

  • MATH 5110-5120 - Algebra
  • MATH 5210-5220 - Analysis
  • MATH 5310-5320 - Topology
  • MATH 6310-6320 - Differential Geometry
