Please note that the semesters indicated are listed to assist students in planning their schedules and indicate which semesters the courses are usually offered. This does not guarantee these courses will always be offered in the same semesters as they have in the past. Courses marked "irregular" are courses which are not offered on a regular basis.

Discrete Mathematics MAD2104 or Introduction to Advanced Mathematics MGF3301 builds proof writing skills and should be taken in preparation for any 4XXX level mathematics course. A student aiming for graduate school in pure math should plan to take Introduction to Mathematics (MGF3301) or its equivalent by the end of fall of their junior year, and take full year sequences in Advanced Calculus (MAA4226-4227) and Introduction to Abstract Algebra (MAS4302-4303). (Read more about graduate school preparation.)

PHY 2048C* General Physics A (5) (Fall, Spring, Summer)

*PHY 2048C serves two requirements. The first is as part of the State of Florida Common Program Prerequisite one laboratory based science course for four credit hours designed for science majors and secondly as or an approved calculus-based natural or social science course. An approved calculus-based social science course cannot count as a laboratory based science course for four credit hours designed for science majors.

*PHY 2049C is recommended.

Sequences

To satisfy the Department depth requirement, students must complete at least one of the following sequences.

course number course name
MAA 4226-4227 Advanced Calculus I & II
MAA 4402 & MTG 4302 Complex Analysis and Topology I
MAD 3703-4704 Numerical Analysis I & II
MAP 4341-4342 Elementary Partial Differential Equations I & II
MAS 4302-4303 Introduction To Abstract Algebra I & II

Additional Coursework

In addition to the above required courses the student must complete 4 of the following courses (at least 2 of the 4 must be at the 4000 level). The courses used to satisfy the sequence requirement (see above) should shape your choice of the 4 courses. Several of the courses are only irregularly offered, and are so marked. MAT4934 is available to students wishing to write an honors thesis in mathematics. This is usually done in the Fall and/or Spring of Senior year, and is highly recommended for students aiming for graduate school.
