# Undergraduate Program

## Advanced Courses with Substantial Mathematical Content

Several concentrations in the mathematics department require two additional advanced courses with substantial mathematical content.

The official description of such courses is:

Courses that employ mathematical language, reasoning or methodology qualify. Any mathematics course numbered 200 or above qualifies, as do certain non-introductory courses in other departments. The most common courses in other departments that qualify are courses of a quantitative nature from the social and physical sciences, engineering, computer science or statistics, but there are other possibilities. Selections must be approved by the student’s departmental advisor.

In order to aid students and advisors, we have developed the following list of qualifying courses. This list is not exhaustive. If you are a student and believe a course satisfies the above description but is not on this list, please consult with your advisor. Your advisor in consultation with the undergraduate committee can approve a course not on this list.
