Body

Also known as “pure” mathematics, theoretical mathematics explores the basic concepts and structure beneath many math topics ranging from geometry to analysis. With elective options constructed as a part of this track, students are able to personalize the major to meet the needs of their future career/academic goals or highlight particular fields of interest.

Students may review the requirements and sample schedule for the Theoretical Math Track on the  Math Theoretical Track Requirements and Sample Schedule [pdf] handout.

Students interested in the theoretical math track will be required to complete the following course work, as well as pick 6 hours of electives to highlight their major and field of interest.  Many of the other math major tracks offered within the Department of Mathematics have similar core major requirements; the main differences lie within the elective choices that have been previously defined in order to align to each particular career field to which the track applies.
