Program Requirements

All mathematics and statistics courses require a grade of C- or better. Program coursework may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.

Capstone Experience


The capstone experience is a 3-credit requirement for all Mathematics and Statistics majors. The capstone may be satisfied in several ways, including, but not limited to, completing an internship and a reflective essay, participating in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), or completing MATH/STAT 5810. Other means of satisfying the requirement may be developed on an individual basis between the student and their faculty advisor.
