The Department of Mathematics offers both the A.B. degree and the
B.S. degree. Students who plan to attend graduate school in
mathematics or the sciences should consider working toward the
B.S. degree, which requires at least eight courses in mathematics
numbered above 111. The A.B. degree requires at least six and
one-half courses numbered above 111. Beginning with students
matriculating in fall 1996, both degrees require a minimum of ten
courses in mathematics, at least eight of which must be at the 100
level or above (see p. 21 of the *Bulletin of Duke University
1996-97: Undergraduate Instruction*). The specific requirements for
the A.B. and B.S. degrees are listed below.

**Bachelor of Arts Degree**

Prerequisites: Mathematics 31 or 31L or an equivalent course (Advanced Placement course credit allowed); Mathematics 32 or 32L or 41 or an equivalent course (Advanced Placement course credit allowed); Mathematics 103 and Mathematics 104 or equivalent courses. (Many upper level mathematics courses assume programming experience at the level of Computer Science 4. Students without computer experience are encouraged to take Computer Science 6.) (Revised 4/14/95.)

Major Requirements: Six and one-half courses in mathematics numbered above 111 including Mathematics 121 or 200 and Mathematics 139 or 203.

**Bachelor of Science Degree**

Prerequisites: Mathematics 31 or 31L or an equivalent course (Advanced Placement course credit allowed); Mathematics 32 or 32L or 41 or an equivalent course (Advanced Placement course credit allowed); Mathematics 103 and 104 or equivalent courses. (Many upper level mathematics courses assume programming experience at the level of Computer Science 4. Students without computer experience are encouraged to take Computer Science 6.) (Revised 4/14/95.)

Major Requirements: Eight courses in mathematics numbered above 111 including Mathematics 121 or 200; Mathematics 139 or 203; and one of Mathematics 136, 181, 201, 204, 205, 206. Also, Physics 41L, 42L or Physics 51L, 52L or Physics 53L, 54L. (Revised 3/22/96.)

**Requirements for the Mathematics Minor**

Prerequisites: Mathematics 103 or the equivalent. (Many upper-level courses assume programming experience at the level of Computer Science 4. Students without programming experience are encouraged to take Computer Science 6.)

Minor requirements: Five courses as follows: either Mathematics 104 or Mathematics 111, but not both; four additional courses in mathematics numbered above 111, to include at least one course (or its equivalent) selected from the following: Mathematics 121, 132S, 135, 139, 160, 181, 187, or any 200-level course. (Approved 4/14/95).
