Course Rotation

Not all courses are offered every semester. When you plan your Junior and Senior years, you need to be aware of our Course Rotation. You should especially be aware of which courses are offered in which year. The good news is that this two-year scheme allows us to offer a wide variety of courses. The bad news is that you need to take a particular course in the year when it comes around. So, map out your Mathematics and Statistics courses for your Junior AND Senior years now!! You can certainly change your plans as time moves along. But you should certainly note those courses which you know you want to or need to take. Above all -- SEE YOUR ADVISOR!! HE/SHE KNOWS ALL!!

Note that MA 107, ST 110, MA 151, ST 210, MA 251, and MA 252 are offered every semester.

300 Level Courses

All of these 300 level courses are required for Mathematics majors.
MA301, MA351, and MA395 are required for Statistics majors. MA302 may be taken as an elective for Statistics majors.

Fall Spring
MA 301 Linear Algebra MA 301 Linear Algebra
MA 351 Calculus III MA 302 MATLAB
MA 395 Discrete Methods MA 304 Differential Equations

MA 395 Discrete Methods

400 Level Course Rotation for Mathematics Majors

(and 300-level courses in the two-year rotation)

Note that O/E refers to the academic year in which the Fall semester is an odd numbered year and the Spring semester is an even numbered year.
E/O is similarly defined.

(and 300-level courses in the two-year rotation)

Note that at most two of MA421, MA427, and MA445 may be included in the Statistics major.
Note that O/E refers to the academic year in which the Fall semester is an odd numbered year and the Spring semester is an even numbered year.
E/O is similarly defined.
