Selected Upper Level Courses for the Mathematics Major

Mathematics Undergraduate Program

This page accompanies the Mathematics Department's general information flyer, giving a fuller listing of some upper level courses commonly taken to fulfill the elective requirements for the mathematics major. The semesters in which they are usually offered (Fall, Spring, or Summer) are indicated, to help students plan their schedules. As variations will occur over time, one should not assume that this schedule will be rigidly followed by the department - and one should be on the lookout for new courses which develop the program in new directions, and may be of special interest.
  • 300 Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning (F,S) – required for many upper level courses

In Fall 2006 we introduced a new course on Financial Mathematics under the temporary number 495, and we are introducing new courses aimed at future elementary school teachers as well.

Note on numbering: The official course number for Math 300 is 01:640:300, where 640 is the subject number (Mathematics).
