Interdisciplinary Concentration This program provides students the flexibility to seek specialization in a math-related area, such as economics, physics, mathematical biology, mathematical chemistry, biostatistics, quantitative business, actuarial science, etc. In consultation with a faculty advisor, each student prepares a program of study suited to his or her interests and goals. The program of study includes a core of mathematics courses and must be approved by the director of undergraduate studies in the department. Sample programs of study are available from the department. - Mathematics Major Core (30 s.h.)
