Comprehensive Requirement

The comprehensive requirement has two parts. The first part measures competence in the five fundamental courses and is handled during MATH 300: Junior Colloquium.  During Math 300 students take exams in each of the fundamental areas; a passing score on each exam is a 12 (or higher) out of 20. The second part is fulfilled by completing 4 units of MATH 400: Senior Colloquium. To pass the comprehensive requirements with distinction a student must pass all five exams on her/his first try, have at least an 80% overall average on the exams, and receive at least an A- in one section of MATH 400.  Further information is available from the department.
