Becoming a Math Major: First, review the Major requirements and concentrations, then:

All current UMass students must declare a concentration upon entry to the Math major. Existing Majors who entered as Freshmen will be asked to select a concentration before the registration period for their third semester, but are welcome and encouraged to select one earlier. To add or change a concentration, or to select a second concentration, please email Jacob Lagerstrom.

Criteria for Admission to the Major: There are no specific criteria for admission, but Majors should be aware that a C or better is needed in Math 132 in order to take certain upper level courses required for the Major.

Interested in the Minor? Students wishing to minor in math should consult the Minor and Secondary Major page. Direct any questions about the Minor or requests to add the Minor to Garret Cahill.
