The Catholic University of America

Undergraduate Programs in Mathematics

Undergraduate Advisor: Joshua Himmelsbach, himmelsbach@cua.edu


The Mathematics Departments offers a minor in mathematics, a minor in actuarial sciences , and the following majors in mathematics.

 

Minor in Mathematics

The minor requires six courses in all:

  • Two calculus courses
  • Math 248 or CSC 210 (but not both)
  • Three additional mathematics courses at least two of which are chosen from Math 301, 321, 322 and courses at the 400 level or above.
Certain other degree programs' requirements at Catholic University include two to four of the required six courses in the minor. Interested students in those concentrations should consider taking the additional mathematics courses needed to complete the minor.
