BSc or BA (120 credit hour) Double Major in Mathematics and another subject

The Double Major degree program allows students to combine the study of Mathematics with another subject. The other subject may be any discipline from the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Computer Science or the College of Sustainability. Mathematics may be the primary subject (defined as the subject with the larger number of credits), or the secondary subject. If the primary subject area is from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the degree granted will be a BA.

Students enrolled in a Double Major program are advised to review their proposed program of study with advisors in both subject areas.

Departmental requirements

In addition to fulfilling the requirements outlined in the Academic Regulations and College of Arts and Science Degree Requirements sections, students in a BSc or BA Double Major program in Mathematics and another subject must complete the following:
