Program Requirements

If you are pursuing a degree in mathematics, you must meet the below requirements to be eligible for graduation. Also, you must complete the general education program, fulfill the general baccalaureate degree requirements and complete at least 125 hours of coursework.

The math program can be non-comprehensive – therefore requiring the completion of a minor – or comprehensive, so that no minor is needed. Consult your advisor to determine which program is best for you.
