The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in mathematics requires the completion of 13 units of mathematics, statistics, and computer science. These units must include Math 122, 131, 201, 331, 361, 431, 491, Statistics 202, Computer Science 120, and four additional units in mathematics or statistics numbered 300-level or above (one of these units may be Computer Science 390, Physics 350, or Physics 432).

**Minor in Mathematics**

A minor in mathematics will require six units, including MATH 121, 122, 131, 201 and two additional units in mathematics or statistics. One of these additional units must be at the 200 level or above and the other must be at the 300 level or above.
