2 ASTR 1010 -ASTR 1020 ; or BIOL 1010 -BIOL 1020 ; or BIOL 1110 -BIOL 1120 ; or CHEM 1010 -CHEM 1020 ; or CHEM 1110 -CHEM 1120 ; or GEOL 1040 -GEOL 1045 ; or PHYS 2110 -PHYS 2111 , PHYS 2120 -PHYS 2121 .
   
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.
   
  Applied Mathematics Sequence List: 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) .
   
A minor of 15 hours, including at least six upper division hours, must be completed in a coherent program of study. The criterion for coherence may be met (1) by taking all minor courses in a single discipline (i.e., courses with the same prefix) or (2) by taking the courses prescribed in an approved interdisciplinary minor.

 

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.

Note:

Students who wish to prepare for the second Actuarial Exam should obtain permission from the Graduate School to take MATH 6270.

Note:

The sequence requirement should be met by choosing two sequences from the Applied Math Sequence List. It is recommended that the student minor in Computer Science.
