Teacher of Mathematics. In addition to the courses required by the Department of Education for the teacher preparation program, the student must complete all of the requirements for a major in mathematics, including the courses MTH 2423 - Topics in Geometry , MTH 2527 - Probability and Statistics I , and MTH 3400 - Readings in Mathematics . The student must maintain a 3.00 grade point average.

Mathematics-Economics. A major in Mathematics-Economics is an option for students interested in combining mathematical rigor with economic principles and applications. This major is administered by the Economics Department.

Custom Designed Interdisciplinary Major Programs. The Department of Mathematics encourages students to design their own customized program of studies that combines an in-depth study of mathematics with extensive work in a related discipline. In addition to the College’s general education requirements, these programs generally require 24 credits in mathematics at the 1200 level or higher, 24 credits in the related department, and a 4-credit capstone course that integrates work in the two disciplines. In the past, students have pursued joint majors that combine mathematics with biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, electrical engineering, civil engineering, physics, and psychology. Other combinations are possible. Interested students should meet with one of the co-chairs of the Mathematics Department to select faculty advisors from the two departments, to create a proposed set of courses from each department, and to obtain the necessary approvals.

Mathematics Placement Exam. Students who have not already earned credit for a college-level calculus course (equivalent to MTH 1115, MTH 1217, or higher) must take the Merrimack College Mathematics Placement Exam before registering for any math course.
