These Sample Programs provide guidelines to major in mathematics at Bryn Mawr from a few different perspectives. Certainly, in every case, there is substantial flexibility to tailor a course of study to fit an individual’s personal preferences and needs. This selection is by no means a complete picture of every alternative. A student can choose from a variety of options to fashion a program that suits her desires. Almost anything is possible in our mathematics department!
Please note that the annual Course Guide indicates exactly which course meets which Divisional Requirement by the use of Roman numerals I, II, and III. In all departments, many courses are offered every semester while some courses are offered only one of the two semesters each year, or even every other year. These factors must be taken into consideration in any long term planning. The illustrations available here can be ideal starting points to create your own perfect fouryear curriculum!
Note: Divisional requirements and electives can be interchanged among the various semesters to accommodate the student’s desires.
