In the fall semester approximately 1400 students enroll in our diverse undergraduate course offerings. Future mathematics majors generally (but not always) begin with one of our introductory proof-based courses:

A few prospective majors start in MAT214 (Introduction to Number Theory) or in MAT203 (Vector Calculus) instead.

Our other lower division courses, numbered between 100 and 202 develop key analytic skills at a variety of levels appropriate for prospective majors in the natural sciences, engineering, finance, economics and other social sciences.

We have collected detailed information here to help you figure out which courses or sequences are right for you. Start with our
