Outside Department Courses

Statement of Philosophy

The spirit of the outside course requirement is that students should learn to communicate with and appreciate the perspectives of users and producers of mathematics in other disciplines. Courses which fulfill this requirement should (a) have significant content in mathematics or mathematics education; and (b) not be substantially equivalent to courses in the mathematics department. A list of a priori acceptable courses is attached. A priori unacceptable courses include those cross listed in mathematics or taught by a mathematics faculty member. An exception is that courses offered by the math department in mathematics education may be used by students in mathematics proper (i.e., not students pursuing the math education options) to satisfy the outside course requirement.
