Some courses listed on this checksheet may have prerequisites and/or corequisites; please consult the University Course Catalog or check with your advisor.
May also be used for Pathways 5a.
Students need Senior status to enroll in 5000-level EDCI courses.
Juniors must apply for this course in early September in order to get a middle/high school placement for the following spring. See Mathematics Education Program handbook for details.
If MATH 2204 Introduction to Multivariable Calculus not used for degree core, MATH 2204 Introduction to Multivariable Calculus; if MATH 2214 Introduction to Differential Equations not used for Pathways and not used for degree core, MATH 2214 Introduction to Differential Equations; otherwise, any 3000- level or 4000-level math course not used to meet other course-specific degree requirements. Students must petition the Associate Chair to use MATH 4974 Independent Study, MATH 4984 Special Study, or MATH 4994 Undergraduate Research.
Each student is required to participate in the department’s Outcomes Assessment procedures as determined by each year’s Undergraduate Program Committee and approved by the Chair.
120 Credits
Students who did not successfully complete at least two years of a single foreign, classical, or sign language during high school must successfully complete six credit hours of a single foreign, classical, or sign language at the college level. Courses taken to meet this requirement do not count toward the hours required for graduation. Please consult the Undergraduate Catalog for details.
Upon having attempted 36 semester credits, the student must have completed 12 credits of the Pathways General Education Requirements. Upon having attempted 72 credits (including transfer, advanced placement, advanced standing, credit by examination, and course withdrawal), the student must have completed 24 credits of the Pathways General Education Requirements. In addition, satisfactory progress toward the B.S. in mathematics requires that:
Students are required to have a 2.0 GPA and a 2.0 in-major GPA for Graduation. In-major GPA for this option is computed using all MATH courses listed in II and III.
