3 Upper Division Mathematics courses (3000 or higher). The student must complete three Upper-Division sequences. The approved sequences are organized into Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics categories as shown below. The student must complete at least one sequence from each category.  Depending upon which Upper-Division sequences are chosen, a student will need to take between 9 and 18 credit hours of Upper-Division Mathematics classes in addition to the Mathematics courses specifically listed as required in the curriculum.
  Applied Mathematics Sequence List:  MATH 3070 -MATH 3080 ; MATH 4210 (5210) -MATH 4220 (5220) ; MATH 4250 (5250) -MATH 4260 (5260) ; two of the three: MATH 4350 (5350) , MATH 4360 (5360)  or MATH 4050 (5050) ; and MATH 4470 (5470) -MATH 4480 (5480) .
  Pure Mathematics Sequence List: MATH 3430 -MATH 4310 (5310) ; MATH 4010 (5010) -MATH 4020 (5020) ;  - ; MATH 4310 (5310) -MATH 4320 (5320) ; MATH 4530 (5530) -MATH 4540 (5540) ; and MATH 4850 (5850) -MATH 4860 (5860) .

 

Optional Tracks


To allow students to prepare for different career paths, four optional tracks are available: Actuarial, Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, and Statistics. The following are courses recommended (but not required) for students in each track.

Actuarial Track:


 

The Actuarial Track is designed for students who want to pursue a career in the technical branches of Finance or insurance.

MATH 3070-3080 Statistical Methods I and II
MATH 4210-4220 Numerical Analysis I and II
MATH 4470-4480 Probability and Statistics I and II
MATH 4540 Linear Algebra II
MATH 6270 Mathematical Statistics (with permission from the Graduate School)
The following courses from the College of Business (the courses marked with an asterisk comprise a Business Minor):
*ECON 2010-2020  
*ACCT 3720  
*BMGT 3510  
*MKT 3400  
*FIN 3210  
*LAW 3810  
FIN 3610  
DS 2810  
DS 3620  

 

Applied Mathematics Track:


The Applied Mathematics Track emphasizes courses needed by students who plan to work alongside scientists and engineers in industry. It is recommended that the student minor in Computer Science as a complement to this track.

  • MATH 3810 Complex Variables
  • MATH 4510 Advanced Math for Engineers
  • MATH 4540 Linear Algebra II
  • Two sequences chosen from:
    • MATH 3070-3080 Statistical Methods I and II
    • MATH 4210-4220 Numerical Analysis I and II
    • MATH 4250-4260 Advanced Ordinary Differential Equations I and II
    • MATH 4350 Introductory Combinatorics and MATH 4360 Graph Theory
    • MATH 4470-4480 Probability and Statistics I and II

Pure Mathematics Track:


The Pure Mathematics Track provides a good foundation for graduate study in a variety of subjects such as Economics, Finance, Business, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics.

  • MATH 4020 Modern Algebra II
  • MATH 4120 Advanced Calculus II
  • MATH 4310 Introduction to Topology I
  • MATH 4350 Introductory Combinatorics
  • MATH 4360 Graph Theory
  • MATH 4540 Linear Algebra II

Statistics Track:


The Statistics Track prepares students for immediate entry into the workforce or for graduate study. Statistical knowledge is a powerful tool that is used in many fields such as Political Science, Business, Biology, and Medicine.

  • MATH 3070-3080 Statistical Methods I and II
  • MATH 4210-4220 Numerical Analysis I and II
  • MATH 4470-4480 Probability and Statistics I and II
  • MATH 4540 Linear Algebra II
