 OR, the two intensive courses:
NOTE: Students who have taken Math for Economics for an Economics major or intended major can use the MATHUA 211, 212, and 213 Math for Economics I  III sequence towards the math major requirements instead of MATHUA 121, 122 and 123 Calculus I  III sequence. You will have to get this approved by the Math Department. All other students must use the Calculus sequence. If you have any questions regarding this requirement please contact the Math Department.
Analysis and Algebra Requirements

Additional Guidelines
In addition to the above requirements, the following guidelines must be observed:
 Any two computer science courses (numbered CSCIUA 101 or higher, except CSCIUA 380) or graduate data science DSGA courses may be credited toward the 13 course requirement. The prerequisites for DSGA courses are Calculus III, Linear Algebra, and programming experience in Python (preferred) or MATLAB. Probability is useful, but not a required course prerequisite.
 Students enrolled in and who complete the Premedical or Predental Program and who wish to major in mathematics may substitute at most two math classes by any two of the following; General Physics I and II (PHYSUA 11 and 12) or Physics I, II (PHYSUA 100 and 101) toward their 13 course requirement. However, if these physics courses are used towards the mathematics major, the computer sciences or data science courses will not apply towards the major.
 Students may doublecount no more than two courses towards both the Mathematics Major and the requirements of another major or minor.
 Students may petition to enroll in graduate mathematics courses and apply them to the undergraduate major. Usually, permission to enroll is not granted until the student has completed MATHUA 325 Analysis and the available undergraduate courses on the same topic.
 Courses taken under the pass/fail option are not counted toward the major.
 A grade of C or better is required in all courses used to fulfill the major requirement.

 MATHUA 252 Numerical Analysis or MATHGA 2010 Numerical Methods I

ONE course from the advanced course list below:
 MATHUA 262 Ordinary Differential Equations
 MATHUA 263 Partial Differential Equations
 MATHUA 325 Analysis
 STATUB 15 Statistical Inference and Regression Analysis
 STATUB 21 Introduction to Stochastic Processes
NOTE: All students must take at least one Stern course in order to meet minor requirements. If a student has completed the CAS version of Probability, STATUB 14 should not be taken. Instead, please select one of the following:
 STATUB 15 Statistical Inference and Regression Analysis
 STATUB 21 Introduction to Stochastic Processes
 Students who have the equivalent of MATHUA 140 should substitute a more advanced course from the list above.
Mathematics Education Minor for Math Majors
The Mathematics Education Minor (for Mathematics Majors) enables you to complete course work as an undergraduate in CAS that will reduce the number of credits required of a Steinhardt School of Education M.A. degree in Teachers of Mathematics, Grades 712 that will fulfill the requirements for Initial teacher certification. The master's degree will require 30 credits including student teaching internships beyond the bachelor's degree.
Ideally you would want to declare the minor and begin taking these courses during your first semester of junior year. Please be advised that most of these courses require a field work component consisting of classroom observation and participation. For course descriptions, please see the Steinhardt School of Education's current Undergraduate Bulletin.
