At Hiram College, students can pursue an academic major or minor in mathematics. The major and minor sequences of coursework prepare students for a lifetime of applying mathematical concepts within diverse professional and personal contexts that range from top-secret government cryptographers to personal financial managers.

## Requirements for the Major

### A student majoring in mathematics must complete the following requirements:

- MATH 19800: Calculus I
- MATH 19900: Calculus II
- MATH 20000: Calculus III
- MATH 21700: Discrete Mathematics
- MATH 21800: Linear Algebra
- MATH 30800: Mathematical Statistics I
- MATH 37100: Analysis I
- MATH 46100: Abstract Algebra I
- MATH 38000: Junior Seminar
- MATH 48000: Senior Seminar
- Two additional mathematics courses numbered above 200
- A Correlative Experience chosen by the student in consultation with an adviser in the mathematics department
- A Mathematics Portfolio

### Plus one of the following:

- MATH 30900: Mathematical Statistics II
- MATH 37200: Analysis II
- MATH 46200: Abstract Algebra II

The Senior Seminar course (MATH 48000) is the mathematics capstone. In this course the student undertakes a project that involves significant independent learning in an area not included in the standard undergraduate mathematics curriculum. The project culminates in a paper and a public oral presentation.

## Requirements for the Minor

A student minoring in mathematics must complete the following courses:

- MATH 19800: Calculus I
- MATH 19900: Calculus II
- Two mathematics courses numbered 200 or above
- Three additional mathematics courses numbered 300 or above

## Departmental Honors

Mathematics departmental honors will be determined by a vote of the mathematics department faculty. Only students who meet the college’s minimum requirements for honors will be considered.
