The departmental honors program leads to graduation with honors in mathematics or mathematics education. Beyond the requirements of the general honors program, these programs require further course work and a senior thesis. Details are available from the department. These programs require careful planning to complete, and students should normally apply for admission to the departmental honors program during their sophomore year at the same time that they submit a major concentration counseling sheet.
All proposed major programs must be designed in consultation with a departmental advisor and approved by the department of mathematics and statistics. Major programs must consist of a coherent package of courses intended to serve the student's interests and career goals while meeting the above minimum requirements.
Students with specific educational or career goals should take additional courses.
