Undergraduate Dual Majors
The nine free electives in the math curriculum provide a unique opportunity to pursue a dual major. To help design your program of study you should discuss your program with your faculty advisors. A math advisor will be assigned by the Chair of the department when you enroll in the dual degree program.
Some recommended dual majors are:
- Mathematics of Computation and Computer Science
- Mathematics of Operations Research and Computer Science
- Mathematics and Physics
- Mathematics and Chemical Engineering
- Mathematics and Psychology
- Mathematics and Communication

- Each student will be assigned an adviser in each department who monitors progress towards degrees in that department.
- The degree clearance officer in the department certifies that the student has met the degree requirements in that department.
