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. All students must also fulfill Liberal Arts Core and University requirements, and some of the following courses may also fulfill those requirements.

  • IT 130 Java Programming
  • MA 181 Calculus † or MA 171 Calculus with Precalculus A and MA 172 Calculus with Precalculus B
  • MA 200 Calculus of the Infinite † (Note: MA 181 + MA 200 is equivalent to a traditional Calculus I and II)
  • MA 210 Seminar with Introduction to Proofs through Discrete Math ‡
  • MA 215 Linear Algebra and Proof Techniques
  • MA 218 Probability and Statistics
  • MA 221 Multivariable Calculus
  • MA 230 Scientific Computing
  • MA 257 Introduction to Number Theory and Proof Techniques
  • 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
  • PHYS 271 General Physics I with lab and PHYS 272 General Physics II with lab or BIO 151 General Biology I with lab and BIO 262 Genetics with 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.

Minor Requirements

  • MA 181 Calculus
  • MA 218 Probability and Statistics
  • At least nine (9) additional credits from MA courses numbered 200 or above and including one seminar course (MA 210 Seminar with Introduction to Proofs through Discrete Math or MA 309 Mathematics Seminar).
  • Suggested tracks include:
    • Proofs-focused Track
      • MA 215 Linear Algebra and Proof Techniques or MA 257 Introduction to Number Theory and Proof Techniques
      • MA 420 Abstract Algebra or MA 425 Introduction to Real Analysis
    • Applications-focused Track
      • MA 230 Scientific Computing, MA 325 Differential Equations, and MA 418 Stochastic Modeling
