In addition, two laboratory science courses are required.

Note: CS 151 is strongly recommended.

Mathematics Honors Concentration

Mathematics Honors concentration does not require a minor. This concentration will provide preparation for graduate school or a career involving upper-level mathematics. It will expose students to more varied topics in mathematics. 

In addition to the required courses for the major, this concentration requires MATH 355, STAT 315, and one of MATH 483 or MATH 485. Instead of 6 credits chosen from the list of Electives for the major this concentration requires 15 credits chosen from a slightly different list of Electives.
