Undergraduate Advising Information and Admission to the Major

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

Phone: 413-545-2282

Becoming a Math Major:  Students wishing to major in Mathematics should stop by 1521E for information.  Students interested in math as a secondary major or the dual degree should first read the Minor and Secondary Major page.

Criteria for Admission to the Major:  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 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.  Students will need to declare a concentration upon joining the major.

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

Interested in the Minor?  Students wishing to minor in math should consult the Minor and Secondary Major page.
