Students taking MATH 1730 before 1910 can take 1730 in First Year Fall, 1910 in First Year Spring, and 1920 in the Summer Semester.

Suggested minors: Statistics, Computer Science, Physics, Engineering Technology, Decision Sciences, Accounting, Economics, and Finance.

3 These courses are not specifially required as Major Guided Electives, but are recommended.

MATH 4500 and MATH 4710 must be taken as Major Guided Electives for the Pure Mathematics track.  MATH 4460, MATH 4670, and STAT 4250 must instead be taken for the Applied Mathematics track.
