Important notes
 red = core requirement for all math majors;
 green = required course for the B.S. in math;
 blue = one of several choices of required courses for the B.A.: one of Vector Calculus or Abstract Algebra, and one of Number Theory or Probability. Senior comprehensive exams are required for all students.
Note that CMPS 367 C++ (with a prerequisite of CMPS 301), and PHYS 203 Physics I: Mechanics and Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism are also required as supporting courses, and should be taken during lighter semesters, but as early as possible. PHYS 203 and PHYS 204 are offered every fall and spring, respectively. CMPS 301 and CMPS 367 are both offered every fall and spring.
Two additional elective courses (8 units) are required for the B.A., and three additional elective courses (12 units) are required for the B.S. Selected other (electives) are in parentheses. Other classes not listed, such as Foundations of Geometry, or Mathematical Statistics, may be taken as directed studies, or may be offered if a sufficient number of students show an interest.
