The Interdisciplinary Concentration in the Mathematical Sciences offers a great deal of breadth and flexibility for the design of quantitatively-based programs. Students choose an area of emphasis in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Psychology, or another area negotiated with the advisor. The Interdisciplinary Concentration in the Mathematical Sciences may also be appropriate for a pre-medicine student interested in a quantitative program of study in the sciences.

Available Options: Concentration in Interdisciplinary Mathematical Sciences, with an Emphasis in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Psychology, or another area negotiated with the advisor.

Note: Students declaring a concentration prior to Spring 2009 may adhere to this version or the previous version of the Interdisciplinary Math Concentration.

Electives: Electives must be upper division. Twelve upper division hours should be in the area of emphasis, and the other six should be any upper division courses in mathematics or the sciences. These include all Honors College upper division courses offered in Mathematics, Computer Science, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, and Psychology. Generally, students will complete additional science and mathematics courses, but the framework is minimal to allow a maximum of flexibility in designing individual programs. The student should work closely with the advisor in creating an appropriate program of study. Students are reminded that they need 45 upper-level (3000 or 4000-level) credits to graduate.

Restrictions: In order to enter the Honors College Interdisciplinary Mathematical Sciences Concentration program, students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in Honors College courses. In order to count towards the Concentration requirements, upper division Honors Mathematics and Sciences courses must be completed with a grade of C or better, and the cumulative GPA in upper division Math and Science courses must be at least 2.7.
