If you plan to go to graduate school in mathematics or a closely related area, take MATH 301 (Abstract Algebra I), MATH 302 (Abstract Algebra II) and MATH 419 (Complex Variables). Many graduate schools would like you to have taken other 400-level courses, as well. Select French, Russian or German as your foreign language since these are the most prevalent foreign languages in the mathematics literature.
If you plan to teach mathematics in secondary school, refer to the Mathematics Education Program.
If your intended career or future study includes mathematical applications in science or industry, consider the Applied Mathematics Program.
If you are interested in a career in statistics or plan to get a higher degree in statistics/biostatistics, consider the Statistics Program.
If your mathematics major is in preparation for professional school (e.g., law or medicine), consider MATH 303 (Statistics for the Applied Sciences) or MATH 313-314 (Probability and Mathematical Statistics) and take a variety of courses in other departments, making sure that the entrance requirements for professional school will be satisfied.
If your have an interest in mathematical computing, give strong consideration to MATH 385 (Numerical Analysis), as well as selected courses in Computer and Information Sciences (formerly known as Quantitative Methods and Computer Science).
If you have career interests in actuarial science, consider the BS Degree Program in Actuarial Science.
