Some math majors will satisfy the college’s senior writing requirement by taking the senior writing seminar, MTH 487. Other math majors will satisfy the college’s senior writing requirement by doing a one-term thesis (MTH 497). One-term thesis availability is often limited and subject to staffing concerns.
Students planning on applying for honors in mathematics will satisfy the WS requirement with a two-term honors thesis (MTH 498-99).
Rising math-major seniors will get an email from the chair by the end of the winter term of their junior year, listing the WS possibilities available and asking for a ranking of preferences of the options.
