^{6} | Twelve hours must be chosen from MATH 407 - MATH 499 or any 600-level MATH (excluding MATH 601). Students are required to take at least one of the following: MATH 427, MATH 431, MATH 436, MATH 439. Students are encouraged to take MATH 412, MATH 414, MATH 442, or MATH 470. Students who plan to attend graduate school are encouraged to take MATH 447 and at least one 600-level course. Departmental permission is required to take MATH 485 or to enroll in a 600-level MATH course. |

Maximum of 4 hours of MATH 147, MATH 151, or MATH 171 may be used in this degree program.

Maximum of 4 hours of MATH 148, MATH 152, or MATH 172 may be used in this degree program.
