Pre-Approved Classes:

The following courses are automatically approved to be applied toward the 15 elective units of math-related courses allowed for the major.

  • This list is not exclusive.  The courses below are what we commonly see majors take.  If other courses are high enough in math content, they are likely to be approved.
  • Primarily only undergraduate courses are included here, but many graduate courses may also be used.
  • Please contact the Student Services Specialist well in advance of graduation (ideally by fall quarter of your senior year) if you have questions about the usability of courses not on this list.  Be sure to include the course description from ExploreCourses.

ATTENTION: None of these courses may be double-counted towards both the Math major and any other major or minor. The only courses that may be double-counted are the Math 50/60CM/60DM series and first-year calculus.

(Stats 116 counts as a Math course and can be used towards the 49 Math units or the 15 elective units, but not towards both)

 

Please note that Phil 151 and Phil 152 may count towards either 49 units or the 15 elective units but they cannot be counted towards both the 49 units and 15 elective units.
