Undergraduate Studies
Students planning to major in mathematics at the university should take four years of high school mathematics including a year of mathematics as a senior. Courses in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and more advanced topics should be included whdether offered as separate courses or as a unit.
College transfer students who have completed a year of calculus should be able to satisfy the major requirements in mathematics at the University of Oregon in two years.
Science Group Requirement
2The department offers courses that satisfy the science group requirement:
Code  Title  Credits 

MATH 105–107  University Mathematics IIII  12 
MATH 211–213  Fundamentals of Elementary Mathematics IIII  12 
MATH 231–232  Elements of Discrete Mathematics III  8 
MATH 241–242 & MATH 243  Calculus for Business and Social Science III and Introduction to Methods of Probability and Statistics  12 
MATH 246–247  Calculus for the Biological Sciences III  8 
MATH 251–253  Calculus IIII  12 
MATH 261–263  Calculus with Theory IIII  12 
MATH 307  Introduction to Proof  4 
The 100level courses present important mathematical ideas in an elementary setting, stressing concepts more than computation. They do not provide preparation for other mathematics courses but are compatible with further study in mathematics.
Enrollment in Courses
Beginning and transfer students must take a placement examination before enrolling in their first UO mathematics course; the examination is given during each registration period. Students who transfer credit for calculus to the university are excused from the examination.
To enroll in courses that have prerequisites, students must complete the prerequisite courses with grades of C– or better or P.
Students cannot receive credit for a course that is a prerequisite to a course they have already taken. For example, a student with credit in Calculus for Business and Social Science I (MATH 241) cannot later receive credit for College Algebra (MATH 111). For more information about credit restrictions, contact a mathematics advisor.
Bridge Requirement
Most upperdivision courses include mathematical proof as a significant element. To prepare for this, students must satisfy the bridge requirement as a prerequisite to taking any 300 or 400level course other than Elementary Linear Algebra (MATH 341–342), Statistical Methods III (MATH 425–426), or Partial Differential Equations: Fourier Analysis III (MATH 421–422).
The bridge requirement is one of the following:
Code  Title  Credits 

MATH 307 and four of MATH 201, MATH 202, MATH 203, MATH 204, MATH 205, and MATH 206  12  
MATH 231, MATH 232, and two of MATH 201, MATH 202, MATH 203, MATH 204, MATH 205, and MATH 206  12  
MATH 261, MATH 262, and two of MATH 201, MATH 202, MATH 203, MATH 204, MATH 205, and MATH 206  12 
Calculus Sequences
The department offers four calculus sequences. Students need to consult an advisor in mathematics or in their major field about which sequence to take.
Sequence  Description 

MATH 251–253 

MATH 261–263 

MATH 246–247, MATH 253 

MATH 241–242 

The first three sequences are equivalent as far as department requirements for majors or minors and as far as prerequisites for more advanced courses.

Total Credits:  64 
Students who are considering graduate school in mathematics should take at least one or two of the pure math sequences, Introduction to Analysis IIII (MATH 413–415), Introduction to Abstract Algebra IIII (MATH 444–446), or Introduction to Topology (MATH 431–432) and Introduction to Differential Geometry (MATH 433). The choice merits discussion with an advisor.
Bachelor's Degree Requirements
The department offers undergraduate preparation for positions in government, business, and industry and for graduate work in mathematics and statistics. Each student’s major program is individually constructed in consultation with an advisor.
Upperdivision courses used to satisfy major requirements must be taken for letter grades, and only one D grade (D+ or D or D–) may be counted toward the upperdivision requirement. At least 12 credits in upperdivision mathematics courses must be taken in residence at the university.
Statistical Methods I (MATH 425) cannot be used to satisfy requirements for a mathematics major or minor.
To qualify for a bachelor’s degree with a major in mathematics, a student must satisfy the requirements for one of three options: the standard track, pure mathematics, or secondary teaching. In each option, most courses require calculus as a prerequisite, and in each option some of the courses require satisfying the bridge requirement.
Mathematics and Computer Science
The Department of Mathematics and the Department of Computer Science jointly offer an undergraduate major in mathematics and computer science, leading to a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science degree. This program is described in the Mathematics and Computer Science section of this catalog.
Recommended Mathematics Courses for Other Areas
Students with an undergraduate mathematics degree often change fields when enrolling in graduate school. Common choices for a graduate career include computer science, economics, engineering, law, medicine, and physics. It is not unusual for a mathematics major to complete a second major as well. The following mathematics courses are recommended for students interested in other areas:
Code  Title  Credits 

Actuarial Science  
MATH 351–352  Elementary Numerical Analysis III  8 
MATH 461–462  Introduction to Mathematical Methods of Statistics III  8 
MATH 463  Mathematical Methods of Regression Analysis and Analysis of Variance ^{1}  4 
Biological Sciences  
MATH 461–462  Introduction to Mathematical Methods of Statistics III  8 
Computer Science  
MATH 231–232  Elements of Discrete Mathematics III  8 
MATH 351–352  Elementary Numerical Analysis III  8 
or MATH 461–462  Introduction to Mathematical Methods of Statistics III  
MATH 456  Networks and Combinatorics  4 
Economics, Business, and Social Science  
MATH 461–462  Introduction to Mathematical Methods of Statistics III ^{2}  8 
Physical Sciences and Engineering  
MATH 351–352  Elementary Numerical Analysis III  8 
MATH 411–412  Functions of a Complex Variable III  8 
MATH 320  Theory of Differential Equations  4 
MATH 421–422  Partial Differential Equations: Fourier Analysis III  8 
^{1}  Courses in computer science, accounting, and economics are also recommended. It is possible to take the first few actuarial examinations (on calculus, statistics, and numerical analysis) as an undergraduate student. 
^{2}  Students who want to take upperdivision mathematics courses should take Calculus III (MATH 251–252) in place of Calculus for Business and Social Science III (MATH 241–242). 
Honors Program
Students preparing to graduate with honors in mathematics should notify the department’s honors advisor no later than the first term of their senior year (and ideally during the penultimate year of study). There are two requirements for receiving departmental honors:
 Complete all upper division mathematics courses with a net GPA of 3.7 or greater.
 Write a thesis covering advanced topics as assigned by the honors advisor.
The degree with departmental honors is awarded to students whose work is judged truly exceptional.
Preparation for Kindergarten through Secondary School Teaching Careers
The College of Education offers a fifthyear program for middlesecondary licensure in mathematics and for elementary teaching. For more information, see the College of Education section of this catalog.
FourYear Degree Plan
The degree plan shown is only a sample of how students may complete their degrees in four years. There are alternative ways. Students should consult their advisor to determine the best path for them.
To enroll with courses that have prerequisites, students must complete the prerequisite course with grades of C– or better or P. All upperdivision mathematics courses must be taken for letter grades to count toward a mathematics major or minor, and only one D grade (D+ or D or D–) may be counted toward the upperdivision requirements for the major or minor.
