There are two options for earning honors in mathematics.
Students must have at least a 3.5 GPA in the major (at the 200- and 300-levels) to be eligible. Both options also require an oral examination towards the end of the spring semester.
- Option 1: The student can complete Math 302, Math 305, and four additional 300-level courses. She must then pass two comprehensive written examinations in April of her senior year. For this option the GPA is computed after the Fall semester of senior year.
- Option 2: The student can complete two semesters of thesis work (360 and 370). For this option the GPA is computed after the Spring semester of junior year.
Students who are interested in pursuing a degree with honors should consult the department chair.
