Course Planning Guide

A course planning guide is provided below for a mathematics major who takes a statistics minor. Mathematics majors in their first two years should focus on completing the core curriculum, efficiently working through the Key Prerequisites for mathematics content (MATH 2460 and MATH 2800) and beginning 3000-level mathematics content courses. The degree map is a suggestion only. Please discuss your plan of study with your advisor to make sure that you meet all requirements.

Please note that a minor is required, but the content for the minor is left to the student's choice from current UNG minors. You should speak with an advisor in the content area of your chosen minor (at the latest) during your second year so that you can complete the prerequisites and coursework for that minor.

Year 1

Freshman Year

Mathematics majors should complete Calculus II (MATH 2460) during the first year because it is a Key Prerequisite. If Calculus II has not been completed by spring semester of the first year, mathematics majors should consider taking it in the summer before the second year begins.

Year 1 - Fall Semester
Course Hours
MATH 1450-Calculus I 4 hours
ENGL 1101-English Composition I  3 hours
HIST 1112-World Civilization II 3 hours
Science 1  3 hours
Lab  1 hour

15 hours

Why this student is on track

Core Curriculum requirements have been met. Area A of the core is complete (MATH 1450, ENGL 1101 and 1102) as are Area B (HIST 1112 and Foreign Language) and Area D (MATH 2460 and PHYS 1111(L) and 1112(L)). A lab science sequence is required in Area D.

Year 2

Sophomore Year

Mathematics majors should complete Intro to Proofs (MATH 2800) by end of the second year because it is a Key Prerequisite. If Proofs has not been completed by spring semester of the second year, mathematics majors should ensure that it is completed no later than fall semester of the third year. Otherwise, graduation may be delayed.

Why this student is on track

Areas A through D of the core curriculum are complete. Key Prerequisites of MATH 2460 and 2800 enable student a wide choice of mathematics courses to choose from at the 3000- and 4000-level. Area F is nearly complete, and two required 3000-level courses are complete.

Year 3

Junior Year

By the end of the Junior year, students should have completed the entire core curriculum, have at least of half their minor courses complete and several of their 3000- and 4000-level mathematics content complete.

Year 3 - Fall Semester
Course Hours
MATH 2400-Intro to Statistics 3 hours

12 hours

Why this student is on track

The core curriculum is complete including all Area F courses. Only one course for minor remains and the majority of the 3000- and 4000-level mathematics content has been completed.

Year 4

Senior Year

In Year 4, the student must complete all required courses for the major and minor, and take enough electives to earn 120 semester hours of credit at UNG.

Year 4 - Fall Semester
Course Hours
MATH 4200-Real Analysis 3 hours
MATH 3XXX-Math Content Elective 2 or 4  3 hours
MATH 3XXX-Math Content Elective 3 or 4  3 hours
