## Major/Minor Requirements for ISP and MMSS

Mathematics major requirements for students who complete an ISP or MMSS major differ from the standard ones; MMSS majors may also obtain a minor in Mathematics by completing a special set of requirements.

#### Mathematics Major Requirements for ISP Majors

Students majoring in ISP who wish to complete a second major in mathematics may not substitute ISP 398 for any mathematics or statistics course in the ISP curriculum, and must, in addition complete one of the complete sequences:

- 320-1,2,3 Real Analysis or 321-1,2,3 MENU: Real Analysis
- 330-1,2,3 Abstract Algebra or 331-1,2,3 MENU: Abstract Algebra.

It is highly recommended (but not required) that ISP students planning graduate work in mathematics take both a real analysis (320/321) and an algebra (330/331) sequence.

#### Mathematics Major Requirements for MMSS Majors

Students majoring in MMSS who wish to obtain a mathematics major as a third major (in addition to the joint major in MMSS and a social science), must complete must complete all 300-level mathematics courses in the MMSS curriculum (300-0; 385-0; 386-1,2), a social science major of their choice, and six additional mathematics courses.

Three of these courses must be one of the full-year sequences:

- 320-1,2,3 Real Analysis, or
- 321-1,2,3 MENU: Real Analysis

The other 3 must be chosen from

- 310-2,3 Probability and Stochastic Processes (even though MMSS students cannot receive credit for 310-1, those planning to take 310-2,3 would be well advised to sit in on 310-1)
- 311-2,3 MENU: Probability and Stochastic Processes (even though MMSS students cannot receive credit for 311-1, those planning to take 311-2,3 would be well advised to sit in on 311-1)
- 325-0 Complex Analysis
- 330-1,2,3 Abstract Algebra or 331-1,2,3 MENU: Abstract Algebra
- 334-0 Linear Algebra: second course
- 344-1,2 Introduction to Topology
- 360-1,2 MENU: Applied Analysis
- 366-1 Mathematical Models in Finance
- 368-0 Introduction to Optimization

Those MMSS students who are given permission to skip Math 300 (which is normally part of their MMSS requirements) must substitute another 300-level mathematics course for Math 300 in order to complete a Mathematics major.

It is highly recommended (but not required) that MMSS students planning graduate work in mathematics take one of the algebra sequences (330/331).

Students wishing to receive a joint major ONLY in MMSS and math must fulfill the normal requirements for a math major as listed above. Math 285-1,2,3 fulfills the basic courses requirement. Courses at the 300-level, including the MMSS math courses 300, 385, 386-1,2, may not be double counted for both MMSS and math.

#### Mathematics Minor Requirements for MMSS Majors

MMSS students who fulfill all of the requirements for the MMSS major, including Math 385-0, Math 386-1,2, and Math 300 may complete a minor in mathematics by taking one of the full-year sequences:

- 320-1,2,3 Real Analysis, or
- 321-1,2,3 MENU: Real Analysis

Those MMSS students who are given permission to skip Math 300 (which is normally part of their MMSS requirements) must substitute another 300-level mathematics course for Math 300 in order to complete a Mathematics minor.
