Degree Requirements Overview
Major Concentrations: Mathematics majors choose
to complete their program in one of four concentrations:
- Continuous Applied Mathematics
- Discrete Applied Mathematics
- Statistics and Operations Research.
The Mathematics concentration provides the foundational
mathematical depth of a traditional mathematics major and is
intended for students planning on graduate study in an area of
In applied mathematics there are two areas: the Continuous
Applied Mathematics concentration and the Discrete Applied
Mathematics concentration. Students selecting these concentrations
may tailor their programs to interface with another major or to
enhance industrial employment or graduate school opportunities.
The Statistics and Operations Research concentration is
recommended for students pursuing careers in actuarial science,
graduate study in statistics, or employment in government or
industry in a statistical capacity.
Upon graduation a student may request the Head of the
Mathematics Department to issue a letter attesting to the fact that
the requirements in the chosen concentration have been
