Students are required to earn a minimum of 120 semester credits, at least 40 of which must be in courses numbered 300 or above. They must maintain at least a 2.00 grade point average overall, as well as in each major and minor. They must also fulfill General Education and SAH College Core requirements.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics includes a writing-in-the-major program, which incorporates writing requirements across a student's curriculum rather than identifying specific classes as writing emphasis classes. Students who complete a major in Mathematics simultaneously meet the General Education requirement previously met by taking writing emphasis courses.
At least 40 credit hours in mathematics, including:
I. Required core courses:
At least 43 credit hours in mathematics, including:
At least 45-46 credit hours in mathematics (not including certification requirements), including:
At least 55 credit hours in mathematics and business, including:
Students with a math major who are also interested engineering are able to receive both a Bachelor of Science (mathematics major) from UW-La Crosse and a Bachelor of Science (engineering major) from UW-Madison. At UWL, students must complete a minimum of 85 credits, including the General Education requirements and specific math and science course in preparation for the engineering program.
The following courses at UWL for this program include:
At least 22 credits in mathematics: MTH 207, 208, 309; nine credits from MTH 225, 245, 265, MTH courses numbered 300 and above. Credit for MTH 151 may be used to fulfill three of the nine additional credits. Computer science majors may count MTH 317, 371 and CS 453 for credit in both the computer science major and the mathematics minor. Physics majors may count MTH 461 and PHY 470 for credit in both the physics major and the mathematics minor.
At least 20 credits in mathematics: MTH 145, 175 or 207, 405; nine credits from MTH 443, 445, 446, 447, 448, 449. With the approval of the mathematics department chair, a research methods course from another department may be substituted for three of the nine additional credits. MTH 245 may be substituted for MTH 145. This minor is not available to mathematics majors.
At least 22 credits of mathematics: MTH 135, 136, 171, 280, 175 or 207; four credits from MTH 145, 151, 208, 265, 321, or other MTH courses numbered 300 and above.
At least 32 credits of mathematics: MTH 207, 208, 225, 245, 309, 310, 331, and 421.
(All colleges, excluding middle childhood-early adolescence certification program)
Credit for MTH 151 Precalculus (4 cr.) may be used to fulfill three of the nine additional credits.
Can substitute CS 225 for MTH 225. Credit will be given for only one course.
Computer science majors may count MTH 317 Graph Theory (3 cr.), MTH 371 Introduction to Numerical Methods (3 cr.) and CS 453 Introduction to Theory of Computation (3 cr.) for credit in both the computer science major and the mathematics minor.
Physics majors may count MTH 461 Mathematical Physics (3 cr.) and PHY 470 Advanced Quantum Mechanics (3 cr.) for credit in both the physics major and the mathematics minor.
