# Requirements for Major or Minor

### Requirements for the Major

The major programs in both Mathematics and Applied Mathematics are appropriate for students who plan to continue their training in graduate school. The major in Mathematical Sciences combines the elements of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics. It is designed to prepare students for employment in business, administration, and finance, and also give excellent background for someone planning graduate study in a social science field. Students who plan to obtain a teaching qualification in mathematics should plan their course of study carefully with an advisor, since courses that are too far from mathematics do not count towards certification.

**Details about course requirements can be found in the online catalogue.**

### Changes to the Majors

The Mathematics Major now allows substitutions in both the Modern Analysis and Modern Algebra sequences.

### Requirement for the Minor in Mathematics

For a minor in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics:

Six courses from any of the courses offered by the department except MATH UN1003 College Algebra and Analytic Geometry, MATH UN1101 Calculus I / MATH UN1102 Calculus II. Some cognate courses are also acceptable with prior approval from the department Chair.

### Requirements for the Minor in Mathematical Sciences

The minor in Mathematical Sciences comprises 6 courses, at least two from Mathematics and one from each of Statistics and Computer Science. There should be a minimum of three courses in Statistics and Computer Science. Eligible courses are any listed in the Mathematical Sciences Major with the exception of Calculus I and II.
