#### Mathematics – Theoretical Option (120 Hours)

Mathematics Major Core Requirements

In addition to the UCORE requirements and the College of Arts and Sciences requirements, a mathematics major is required to take 13 core courses and a minimum of 4 additional 300-400-level MATH courses specified by a chosen option. Options include: Actuarial Science, Applied Mathematics, Theoretical Mathematics. Courses required for the major may not be taken pass/fail, and a 2.0 minimum GPA is required.

Certification Requirements

1. Applications for certification are accepted at any time during fall and spring semesters. Decisions are made within ten working days of receipt of application. Application forms are available in the Mathematics Department office.

2. Applications are evaluated, and certification decided, by a faculty committee.

3. Applicants must have an overall GPA of at least 2.0.

4. The mathematics core consists of MATH 171, 172, and 220. These courses (or their equivalent for transfer students) must be completed before application.

5. Students with at least a 2.5 GPA in the mathematics core will be certified automatically. Those with less than a 2.0 GPA in the mathematics core will normally not be certified. Others will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

6. Appeals on certification decisions are considered by the department chairperson.

7. Students who are denied certification may reapply after completing at least 12 more semester hours, whereupon decisions are based on grades in mathematics, science, and computer science courses; cumulative grade point average and grade patterns; and a personal interview.

8. Certified students whose cumulative GPA or GPA in MATH courses numbered 171 and above falls below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters, or who are academically deficient, are subject to decertification.

9. Applications for re-certification are handled in the same manner as certification applications for those previously denied.
