Major in Mathematics 20132014
The Mathematics department reserves the right to change major requirements at any time. Please check with the Mathematics department or the CU Boulder catalog for the most current listing of requirements. You are subject to the requirements in effect at the time you declare your major as an Arts & Sciences degree seeking student.
The department of Mathematics offers four tracks for earning a B.A. in Mathematics. In addition to completing the general requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, Mathematics students in all tracks must complete the Mathematics Core courses listed below, as well as the requirements of their chosen track.
Before receiving a B.A. in Mathematics, students must obtain a passing grade on a standardized major field achievement test administered by the Department of Mathematics.
Note: Any APPM course that is crosslisted as a MATH course is considered by the Department of Mathematics to be a Mathematics course.
