 Notes:

  1. Math 113 has no prerequisites besides high school mathematics and is required for the major. Students should keep in mind that it is a prerequisite for the major requirement, Math 332, and plan accordingly.  Math 113 would typically be taken in the spring of the first year or fall of the second.
  2. Students beginning the major as sophomores should consult with a member of the Mathematics Department.

Off-campus Study Options

The most common option is to spend a semester in the Budapest Semester in Mathematics in Budapest, Hungary, to study under the tutelage of eminent Hungarian scholar-teachers with courses taught in English.  A recently adopted similar program is Math in Moscow, in Moscow, Russia.  Other overseas affiliated universities offering courses in mathematics taught in English include: Trinity College Dublin, the Universities of Sussex and East Anglia, and Oxford University.  Students with requisite language background can also study mathematics on Reed programs in Germany, France, Ecuador, and Spain.
