Students may choose one of three majors in the discipline of mathematics: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, or Mathematical Computer Science. A major in Mathematics or Mathematical Computer Science requires at least 11 courses. A major in Applied Mathematics requires at least 10 courses.

**All students majoring in either Mathematics or Applied Mathematics** must complete Mathematics 141, 142, 231, 242, 254. In addition, **a major in Applied Mathematics** requires Mathematics 222, 421, Computer Science 261 as well as two electives in Mathematics at the 200-level or higher. At least one of these electives must be at the 400-level. Computer Science 262 may be substituted for the other Mathematics elective. **A major in Mathematics** requires Mathematics 431, 441, two electives at the 200-level or higher, and two additional electives at the 300-level or above. One elective may be Computer Science 261.

**A major in Computer Science** requires at least 11 courses and two corequisite laboratory courses: Computer Science 261, 262, 361, 460, 461, and 480; Mathematics 141 and 254; and three additional courses, at least two of which must be Computer Science courses at the 200-level or above. A student may use either Computer Science 161 or Physics 106 for the third course.

*Pending SACSCOC’s approval of the teach out plan for the Computer Science major, new students will not be allowed to declare the Computer Science major beginning in Fall 2025. Students interested in the Computer Science major should consult their advisor or the Mathematics and Computer Science Department Chair. *

**A major in Mathematical Computer Science** requires: Computer Science 261, 262, 460, 461, Mathematics 141, 142, 231, 254, and three additional elective courses. The electives may include Mathematics 222, 243, Physics 220, or any 300-level or higher Computer Science or Mathematics courses. At least one of the electives must be at the 300-level or higher.

The department recommends that students who intend to pursue a career in engineering complete a major in either Mathematics or Applied Mathematics; it is recommended that these students take Mathematics 243 and 342 and Computer Science 261 and 262.

The requirements for a minor in Mathematics are 19 credit hours from the following Mathematics courses: 141, 142, 231, 242, and one additional 3 or 4 credit hour course in Mathematics at the 300-level or above.
