Data Analysis Requirement, which can be satisfied via one of the following:
AP Statistics credit (score of 3 or better)
One of the following electives: MAT 137, MAT 242, MAT 341 MAT 348, IT 223, PSY 240, BIO 206, ENV 260, OR SOC 279
Courses from a concentration. The following concentration areas will automatically satisfy the data analysis requirement:
*Actuarial Science
*Financial Math
*Quantitative Analysis and Operations Research
*Statistics

Concentration Requirements

Students must also complete the requirements from one of the following concentrations: Pure Mathematics; Statistics; Actuarial Science; Financial Mathematics; Quantitative Analysis and Operations Research; Applied and Computational Mathematics; or Individualized.

If the student chooses to declare more than one Mathematical Sciences concentration, then the student must complete the requirements for each concentration, and take at least three additional 300-level courses overall. For example, a student earning two concentrations would have taken at least nine 300-level courses, and a student earning three concentrations would have taken at least twelve 300-level courses.
