Undergraduate Advising Information and Admission to the Major

Advising Office: LGRT 1521E is open during these times.

Phone: 413-545-2282

Admission to the Major:  Students wishing to major in Mathematics should stop by 1521E.  Students interested in math as a secondary major or the minor in math should first read the Minor and Secondary Major page.  During the period of March 27 - April 17, the advising office will not be able to process requests to add SM-Math.  During that period, students will still be able to add BS-Math, switch between BS-Math and SM-Math, or drop BS-Math or SM-Math.

Criteria for admission:  Students need to meet with Jacob Lagerstrom before being admitted to the major (drop in whenever the office is open, see above). Students who hold junior year status or higher will also have to meet with the Chief Undergraduate Advisor (Eric Sommers) before being admitted to the major. There are no specific criteria for admission, other than the ability to complete the major in a reasonable timeframe. Majors should, however, be aware that a C or better is needed in Math 132 in order to take certain upper level courses required for the major.

Exisiting Majors:  To change or add a concentration, or switch from SM-Math to BS-Math, please email Jacob Lagerstrom.

Drop-in advising:  All students are welcome to attend drop-in advising hours.
