# Mathematics majors

**All mathematics majors:**

*Required by the spring prior to transfer: *

- Four semesters/five quarters of calculus through multivariable
- Either linear algebra or differential equations

*Additional recommended courses prior to transfer: *

- Complete the full calculus series (encompassing single variable, multivariable, linear algebra, and differential equations)
- One introductory course in C++

**Additional requirements by major:**

#### Mathematics*

- One course in calculus-based physics (mechanics)
- Two additional courses from:
- Calculus-based physics
- General chemistry
- Biology with lab for the major (evolution)
- Symbolic logic

#### Applied Mathematics or Mathematics of Computation*

- Two courses in calculus-based physics (mechanics, electricity, and magnetism)
- One course in general chemistry for the major or a third course in calculus-based physics

*Additionally for Mathematics of Computation:*

- Intermediate/advanced C++ programming and one discrete structures course

#### Financial Actuarial Mathematics*

- One course in microeconomics
- One course in macroeconomics
- One course in introduction to financial accounting
- One course in introduction to managerial accounting.

#### Mathematics/Applied Science*

Please refer to the UCLA General Catalog for a list of additional preparation courses specific to your Applied Science field (History of Science, Medical and Life Sciences).

#### Mathematics/Atmospheric and Oceanic Science

- 1.5 years of calculus-based physics for the major
- Two courses from:
- Climate change
- Air pollution
- Atmospheric environment
- Solar/planetary climate

*Please refer to the UCLA General Catalog for a list of additional preparation courses for this major.*

#### Mathematics/Economics*

- One course in microeconomics
- One course in macroeconomics
- One discrete structures course
- One intermediate course in critical reading and writing

#### Mathematics for Teaching*

- One discrete structures course
- One course in calculus-based physics (mechanics)
- Two additional courses from:
- Calculus-based physics
