DEPARTMENTAL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS :
In addition to the required coursework outlined in this publication, all math majors are required to:
 Receive a “C” or better in all math courses (this applies to the minor also) and a “C” or better in allied courses. Teaching majors must receive a “C+” or better in all math courses and a C or better in physics.
 Maintain a minimum GPA of 2.3 in mathematics courses. Teaching majors must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.8 in mathematics courses.
 Complete at least 18 upper division credit hours of University of Utah mathematics courses.
 Successfully pass, with a C or better (C+ or better for teaching majors), all mathematics courses within 3 attempts. Failure to pass any mathematics course with a C or better within 3 attempts will result in dismissal from the major. A withdrawal will be considered an attempt.
 An exit survey is required the semester a student graduates.
NOTE: Qualified students are encouraged to substitute Math 12501260 for Math 121012202210. Students who have taken courses in the engineering math sequence should see an Undergraduate Advisor to review how those courses will fill requirements in the major.
Requirement Changes
Students are generally held to the Department of Mathematics graduation requirements in place at the time they declare their major. Students who interrupt their studies may be held to the graduation requirements in place when they reenter the University. Graduation requirements shown on this sheet are deemed to be reliable, however, it is the student’s responsibility to check with the advisor periodically concerning possible changes or corrections.
COMBINED BS/MS PROGRAM
Undergraduate math majors who would like to be admitted to the combined BS/MS program
must apply during their junior year. To be eligible for the program a student must
have maintained a 3.5 GPA overall and in their major (which must be mathematics),
and indications must be that the student will successfully satisfy the requirements
for both the Bachelor's and Master's degrees within two years after beginning the
program. Interested students must apply to the department's graduate program and submit
a detailed program of study that has been prepared with the help of the student's
advisor(s). Students must also submit a graduate application to the admissions office.
When applying for the BS/MS program students must meet the regular graduate application
deadlines:
March 15th for Fall Semester
November 1st for Spring Semester
March 15th for Summer Semester
Please note that beginning the program in the summer semester is not encouraged due
to the lack of graduate program classes available in the summer.
Students wishing to participate in this program are strongly encouraged to participate
in research early in their program of study. Transfer students may be considered for the program
only after completing 24 hours of coursework at the University of Utah. For more information
please contact our Graduate Program Coordinator.
