The Honors Track of the Math major provides qualified students with a richer, more rigorous, and more personal mathematical experience than is provided by the standard major. It is intended especially (but not exclusively) for students aiming to do graduate work in Mathematics or a related field.
The honors track course of study is personalized for each student, in consultation with their faculty advisor and the Honors Committee, and will normally include the demanding advanced honors sequences Math 411-412 and Math 451-452 as well as two semesters of one-credit honors seminar, including at least one semester of the upper level seminar Math 492. Students who successfully complete the honors track are eligible to graduate with a B.S. in Mathematics.
Students interested in the honors track should submit an application (available online and in Hill 303). Admission is on a rolling basis: applications are kept active and are re-evaluated each semester, with students being admitted once they have compiled a strong enough record to demonstrate their ability to complete the program. Students interested in and potentially qualified for the honors track are encouraged to take honors sections of calculus and (especially) the honors section of Math 300.
