University Studies Program

This degree requires that The University Studies Program 2015  requirements are met before graduation. Some of the courses required for this major fulfill USP requirements, but not all. Students should check their degree evaluations and consult with their assigned academic advisor to discuss their specific course plan.

Upper Division

These courses, known as the transition courses, introduce students to the three main areas of mathematics research currently represented in the department.

At the upper division, all mathematics majors must take

Depth Course

Every mathematics major must select one course that builds on the corresponding transition course. This sequence provides the student with an opportunity to study one of these areas in greater depth.

Upper Division Math Courses

Finally, an additional 15 credits of upper division math courses (3000 and above) are required. It is recommended that these courses be selected to provide a broad view of mathematics.

Two of the math electives may be chosen from a list of approved courses that have significant math content, upon approval by the student’s advisor. More details about such courses are available on the math department’s web site, www.uwyo.edu/mathstats/.

Only grades of C or better will be accepted for the major.
