- With prior approval of the Mathematics Department, two of these may be courses having significant mathematical content from other departments.
- All Math Majors must take Math 350 two times.
Computational Course (1 course)
- CS 110 Introduction to Computer Science I
- PHYS 301 Computational Physics
- The department strongly recommends taking Physics 110-210.
- Math majors whose native language is English must complete a foreign language requirement, either by completing the second semester of a foreign language course or by achieving a passing score on a language placement test.
- Note that 128 units are required for graduation.
A Mathematics Honors Major must satisfy these additional requirements of 2 additional upper division courses, including at least one 400 level course and:
- PHYS 110 General Physics I
