**First Year**

- First Semester: Math 181 (Calculus I) 4 credits
- Second Semester: Math 182 (Calculus II) 4 credits

**Second Year**

- First Semester: Math 283 (Calculus III) 4 credits, Math 3302(Linear Algebra I) 3 credits
- Second Semester: Math 2853(Differential Equations) 3 credits...

**Third Year**

- First Semester: Math 310 (Introduction to Analysis I) 3 credits, Math 331 (Groups, Rings and Fields) 3 credits
- Second Semester: Math 3113 (Introduction to Analysis II) 3 credits, Math 440 (Introduction to Topology) 3 credits

**Fourth Year**

- First Semester: Math/Stat 461 (1) (Probability Theory) Math Elective(s)4 3 credits
- Second Semester: 3 credits Math Elective(s)4 3 credits

**Total 39 credits **

**Notes:**

- Math/ Stat 461 may be taken at any time after taking Math 283
- Math 330 may be delayed until the third year. However, it is suggested that it be taken before Math 331, a course that is currently offered only in the fall semester. Also, it is a prerequisite for Math 311.
- Students who are preparing for secondary school teaching may substitute two of the three courses: Math 373, 474, 475 for Math 285 and 311.
- These electives may be any Mathematics courses numbered 300 and above. For those contemplating studying pure mathematics in graduate school the program should include Math 410 (Complex Analysis), Math 441 (Algebraic Topology), and/or Math 430 (Linear Algebra II) if possible.
- Although they are not required, the department strongly advises that the student also include Physics 201 and a beginning computer programming course.
- The above program of study is what might be termed a "fast track" that assumes that the beginning student majoring in mathematics is ready to start with college level calculus. It also includes two mathematics courses during the second year so that time is left during the fourth year for more mathematics classes beyond the 39 credit minimum. A more "relaxed" program might be as follows.
