Advice for Math Majors
- See your Math Department faculty advisor every semester for advice about classes and degree requirements. The advisor can be of your choosing, but the default assignment is the department chair.
- Get started on the Calculus sequence immediately. Refer to the prerequisites chart to be sure you have first met the prerequisites for Calculus I (unless you have tested into Calculus I through one of the accepted placement exams).
- Get through the common Math/Stat core courses efficiently and early to avoid delay in graduation.
- Taking Math 2287 before Math 3326 is strongly encouraged.
- Taking Math 4406 before Math 4407 is suggested.
- Take at most three math classes per semester.
- Take one senior-level sequence before your senior year.
- If you are interested in applied math, recommended courses are Math 3362, 4421-2, 4441-2, 4450-1, 4465, and it is recommended that you take some Biology (Biol 1101, 1101L meet Goal 4) and Physics courses (Phys 2211-2 plus 1113-4 meets Goal 5 ).
- If you are interested in applying to graduate school in mathematics, Math 3362, 4423-4, and 4407-8 are recommended.
- If you want to get a job in the industry, take 4400-level statistics and English 3307 (Professional and Technical Writing).
