Mathematics Interdisciplinary Program
The Mathematics Interdisciplinary Program falls under the umbrella of the interdisciplinary major and allows students to combine a directed study of mathematics with another field of their choice within a liberal arts framework. A total of 130 credits is required for the BA degree. The senior research essay or project serves as a capstone. Students will work with the mathematics program advisor to design their program.
- B– or better in Mathematics 151: Calculus II, or
- Score of 4 or 5 on Advanced Placement BC-Calculus test, or
- GPA of 2.3 in 200-level or higher mathematics courses taken over the last three terms (minimum two courses)
- Mathematics 150: Calculus I (or AP equivalent)
- Mathematics 151: Calculus II (or AP equivalent)
- Mathematics 230: Linear Algebra
- Four additional courses at the 200-level or higher (at least two at the 300-level) that have at least one mathematical skill
- Computer Science 180: Structured Programming (prerequisite to many AC courses)
Students must complete a two-course sequence in a single related field, such as:
- Biology 235: Ecology and Biology 335: Limnology
- Business 320: Financial Management and Mathematics/Business 380: Linear Models and Methods for Optimization
- Computer Science 180: Structured Programming and Mathematics/Computer Science 235: Discrete Structures
- Physics 210: Principles of Physics and Physics 211: Principles of Physics II
The mathematics program advisor may approve additional sequences. These courses may overlap courses used to fill mathematical requirements.
