Mathematics, Dual Degree

This sequence permits students to complete a primary major in one discipline and then to complete requirements for a second, “dual,” degree in mathematics. Students could graduate with both degrees simultaneously or, if necessary, graduate with the primary degree in one semester and complete the remaining dual degree requirements within one year. The requirements for the dual degree include 30 semester credit hours of mathematics as outlined below. Students must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours of courses above the total hours required for the primary degree. Thus, the minimum requirement for the two degrees is 150 credit hours.
