Mathematics Program
The Mathematics curriculum stresses breadth, theory, and depth in the study of mathematics while allowing the student the flexibility to choose among topics of their interest. In order to calculate the Math Major GPA, any course with the prefix MATH or MAED 352 should be included in the calculation with the following exceptions:
Civitae Core Requirements (3940 credits)
Civitae Core
Mathematics majors may count Civitae Core courses satisfying major requirements as also satisfying their respective Civitae Core requirements, up to two Pillar courses and one Perspectives course. (Students pursuing Virginia teaching licensure are not restricted as to the number of courses.) The following are the courses in this major that may be used in this way:
 MATH 171 is required to be taken to satisfy the Quantitative Reasoning Pillar requirement
 Mathematics majors seeking Secondary Education Endorsement are required to take EDUC 245 to satisfy the Human Behavior and Social Institutions Pillar requirement, and either MATH 304 or MATH 320 to fulfill the Quantitative Reasoning Perspectives requirement.
Transfer Students go to Transfer Student General Education for requirements.
