Major Requirements
To fulfill the requirements of the major, all students in this program will take the following coursework in a sequence determined in collaboration with a faculty advisor. Some courses also satisfy Liberal Arts Core and/or University Requirements.
  • IT 130 Java Programming
  • MA 181 Calculus I † or MA 171 Calculus I with Precalculus A and MA 172 Calculus I with Precalculus B
  • MA 200 Calculus of the Infinite†
  • MA 209 Mathematics Seminar ‡
  • MA 215 Linear Algebra
  • MA 218 Probability and Statistics
  • MA 221 Multivariable Calculus
  • MA 257 Introduction to Number Theory and Proof Techniques
  • MA 260 Discrete Mathematics for Information Technology
  • MA 261 Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning
  • MA 309 Mathematics Seminar ‡
  • MA 325 Differential Equations
  • MA 400 Internship or MA 433 Research
  • MA 409 Mathematics Seminar ‡
  • MA 418 Stochastic Modeling
  • MA 420 Abstract Algebra
  • MA 425 Introduction to Real Analysis
  • MA 430 Numerical Analysis
  • PHYS 271 General Physics I and PHYS 271L General Physics Lab I AND PHYS 272 General Physics II and PHYS 272L General Physics II Lab or BIO 151 General Biology I and BIO 151L General Biology I Lab AND BIO 262 Genetics and BIO 262L Genetics Lab.
† Students may complete either MA 181 or the MA 171 and MA 172 sequence, which is the equivalent of MA 181, during the freshman year. Also, MA 181 and MA 200 can be waived with appropriate AP credit. Students should take noted courses in a sequence specified by an advisor and, upon successful completion, may not subsequently register for a lower-numbered course in the calculus sequence.
‡ Transfer students or new majors will not be required to make up mathematics seminar classes that met during semesters in which they were not enrolled as a mathematics major at Marymount; however, they are required to make up the credit hours to meet the 120-credit minimum requirement toward graduation.
