When planning any program of study in mathematics, it is strongly recommended that you consult an advisor from the department. Also see the mathematics programs in Actuarial Science, Preparation for Advanced Training, Applied Mathematics, and Meteorology.

To study mathematics strictly from a mathematician’s viewpoint, in specially designed courses, inquire about the department’s tutorial program. (Standard courses listed in the catalog are designed to serve many departments and purposes.)

To prepare for teacher licensure, seek a broad background in various areas of mathematics, including algebra, analysis, geometry, computer science, probability, and statistics. In addition to the course requirements listed by the College of Education, suggested electives include MATH 343, 360, 406, 443, 450A, 450B, and 450C. Please seek assistance at the department office, Morton 321, to consult an advisor in the Department of Mathematics knowledgeable about math education. Together you can plan how to complete the licensure requirements listed under Integrated Mathematics in the College of Education.

See the General Education Requirements listing in the “Graduation Requirements—Universitywide” section for Tier I quantitative skills requirements.
