Students are required to take either the GRE Mathematics Subject Test or the Mathematics Major Field Test the last semester before they graduate. The tests are ETS (Educational Testing Service) standardized assessment tests of undergraduate mathematics. Go to ETS Math Subject Test (http://www.ets.org/gre/subject/about/content/mathematics) or ETS Major Field Tests (http://www.ets.org/mft/about/content/mathematics) for a test description and sample problems. These tests do not appear on the transcript or affect the GPA.
Students must participate in an exit interview before graduation.
Note 1: The courses recommended above can be used to fill General Education requirements.
Note 2: Students who continue toward graduate work should complete Math 372 or Math 473, as well as Math 541 and Math 553.
Note 3: Students who do not plan to pursue a Ph.D. in mathematics are strongly encouraged to complete CS 235.
