The Study of Mathematics
The major in mathematics is an introduction to some of the highlights of the development of theoretical mathematics over the past four hundred years from a modern perspective. This study is also applied to many problems, both internal to mathematics and arising in other disciplines such as physics, cryptography, and finance.
Majors begin by taking either Honors mathematics or the calculus sequence. Students who do not take MATH UN1207 HONORS MATHEMATICS A and MATH UN1208 HONORS MATHEMATICS B normally take MATH UN2010 LINEAR ALGEBRA in the second year. Following this, majors begin to learn some aspects of the main branches of modern mathematics: algebra, analysis, and geometry; as well as some of their subdivisions and hybrids (e.g., number theory, differential geometry, and complex analysis). As the courses become more advanced, they also become more theoretical and prooforiented and less computational.
Aside from the courses offered by the Mathematics Department, cognate courses in areas such as astronomy, chemistry, physics, probability, logic, economics, and computer science can be used toward the major. A cognate course must be a 2000level (or higher) course and must be approved by the director of undergraduate studies. In general, a course not taught by the Mathematics Department is a cognate course for the mathematics major if either (a) it has at least two semesters of calculus as a stated prerequisite, or (b) the subject matter in the course is mathematics beyond an elementary level, such as PHIL UN3411 SYMBOLIC LOGIC, in the Philosophy Department, or COMS W3203 DISCRETE MATHEMATICS, in the Computer Science Department. A list of preapproved cognate courses can be found under the major requirements.
Another requirement for majors is participation in an undergraduate seminar, usually in the junior or senior year. Applied math majors must take the undergraduate applied math seminar sequence in both the junior and senior year. In these seminars, students gain experience in learning an advanced topic and lecturing on it. In order to be eligible for departmental honors, majors must write a senior thesis.

Enrolling in Classes
Most undergraduate level courses in Mathematics can be taken once the prerequisite courses have been completed. Any exceptions to waive a prerequisite requirement must be obtained by writing to the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Students who wish to register for a section of either Supervised Readings and/or Senior Thesis must first identify a faculty sponsor, determine a suitable topic, and obtain written permission from the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Refer to the Undergraduate Research and Senior Thesis section, below.
Preparing for Graduate Study
Departmental advisors can offer advice about and help with graduate school applications. The Mathematics department also runs a Master’s degree program in mathematical finance and a Ph.D. program in mathematics.
Coursework Taken Outside of Columbia
Comprehensive information on college level coursework taken outside Columbia University are described on the College’s Academic Regulation website or the General Studies Transfer Credit website.
Advanced Placement
AP or IB calculus may count towards degree requirements, subject to completion of a higher level course:
 The department grants 3 credits for a score of 4 or 5 on the AP Calculus AB exam provided students complete MATH UN1102 CALCULUS II or MATH UN1201 CALCULUS III with a grade of C or better.
 The department grants 3 credits for a score of 4 on the AP Calculus BC exam provided students complete MATH UN1102 CALCULUS II or MATH UN1201 CALCULUS III with a grade of C or better.
 The department grants 6 credits for a score of 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam provided students complete MATH UN1201 CALCULUS III or MATH UN1205 ACCELERATED MULTIVARIABLE CALC or MATH UN1207 HONORS MATHEMATICS A with a grade of C or better.
Students can receive credit for only one calculus sequence. Other college level courses taken during high school may substitute for course prerequisites pending the approval of the Director of Undergraduate Studies, but will not confer credits.
Barnard College Courses
Any course offered by the Mathematics@Barnard department will count towards degree requirements.
Transfer Courses
Courses taken at other colleges or universities prior to matriculation at Columbia may be evaluated for transfer credit. A maximum of 16 transfer credits may be granted.
 Course equivalency requests for any Calculus level course, Linear Algebra, or Ordinary Differential Equations must be submitted to the Calculus Director for evaluation.
 Course equivalency requests for any other mathematics course must be submitted to the Director of Undergraduate Studies for evaluation.
Study Abroad Courses
Although study abroad is not an integral part of your studies in mathematics, it can provide you with exposure to a different culture and a different educational system, and, as such, can be very fulfilling. You may also want to participate in the Budapest Mathematical Seminar or similar programs in your junior year. Keep in mind, however, that study abroad requires careful planning. If you are seriously considering studying abroad, you should consult with the Director of Undergraduate Studies as early in your program as possible in order to plan your major accordingly and to incorporate study abroad courses that are compatible with your major in mathematics.
Summer Courses
Any mathematics or approved cognate course offered during the summer session will count towards the degree, with the exception of online only courses, which do not count towards degree requirements.
Undergraduate Research and Senior Thesis
Undergraduate Research in Courses
MATH UN3901 Supervised Readings I (fall term only)
MATH UN3902 Supervised Readings II (spring term only)
Prerequisites: The written permission of the faculty member who agrees to act as sponsor (sponsorship limited to fulltime instructors on the staff list), as well as the permission of the Director of Undergraduate Studies. The written permission must be deposited with the Director of Undergraduate Studies before registration is completed.
Guided reading and study in mathematics. A student who wishes to undertake individual study under this program must present a specific project to a member of the staff and secure his or her willingness to act as sponsor. Written reports and periodic conferences with the instructor. Supervising Readings do NOT count towards major requirements, with the exception of an advanced written approval by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Senior Thesis Coursework and Requirements
A Senior Thesis in Mathematics is an original presentation of a subject in pure or applied mathematics from sources in the published literature. The thesis must demonstrate significant independent work of the author. A thesis is expected to be between 20 and 50 pages with complete references and must have a substantial expository component to be well received.
A student who is interested in writing a senior thesis needs to identify a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics as an advisor, determine an appropriate topic, and receive the written approval from the faculty advisor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies. The research of the thesis is conducted primarily during the fall term and the final paper is submitted to the Director of Undergraduate Studies by the end of March.
Students must register for MATH UN3994 SENIOR THESIS IN MATHEMATICS I (4 credits) in the fall semester of their senior year. An optional continuation course MATH UN3995 SENIOR THESIS IN MATHEMATICS II (2 credits) is available during the spring. The second term of this sequence may not be taken without the first. Registration for the spring continuation course has no impact on the timeline or outcome of the final paper. Sections of Senior Thesis in Mathematics I and II do NOT count towards the major requirements, unless prior written approval is obtained from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Undergraduate Research Outside of Courses
The department runs several undergraduate research programs aimed at math majors. Opportunities are available during the academic year and summer terms.
The Undergraduate Mathematics Society is the department’s undergraduate club. Detailed information on membership, Societysponsored seminars and activities, and archival resources are available on the Society’s Web site. The department also sponsors workshops and weekly seminars in mathematics, and posts information about special lectures, conferences, and seminars at nearby schools.
In addition, the Association for Women in Mathematics Columbia Chapter connects students and professors interested in mathematics at Columbia University and Barnard College as part of a broader effort to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity for and the equal treatment of women and girls in the STEM fields.
Department Honors and Prizes
Department Honors
To be recommended to the College Committee on Honors, Awards, and Prizes, which makes the final decisions on all honors’ recipients, you must have a GPA of 3.63 in the major and have completed a senior thesis of merit. For more information on researching and writing the senior thesis and on departmental honors, you should consult with the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Normally no more than 10% of graduating majors receive departmental honors in a given academic year.
Academic Prizes
Putnam Exam
The Putnam exam is a nationwide competitive exam administered each year on the first Saturday in December. A faculty member conducts coaching sessions for students who are interested in competing.
Columbia Prizes
Several prizes for excellence in mathematics are awarded each year to undergraduates, based on performance on a prize exam scheduled each spring. These include:
 Professor Van Amringe Mathematical Prize
 This prize, established in 1910 by George G. Dewitt, Class of 1867, may be awarded to a first year, a sophomore, and a junior student in the College who are deemed most proficient in the mathematical subjects designated during the year of the award.
 John Dash Van Buren Jr. Prize in Mathematics
 Established in 1906 by Mrs. Louis T. Hoyt in memory of her nephew, John Dash Van Buren, Jr., Class of 1905, this prize may be awarded to a Columbia College senior degree candidate who writes the best examination in subjects prescribed by the Mathematics Department.

Guidance for Undergraduate Students in Mathematics
Program Planning for all Students
Placement in the Calculus Sequences
Calculus I
Students who have essentially mastered a precalculus course and those who have a score of 3 or less on an Advanced Placement (AP) exam (either AB or BC) should begin their study of calculus with MATH UN1101 CALCULUS I.
Calculus II and III
Students with a score of 4 or 5 on the AB exam, 4 on the BC exam, or those with no AP score but with a grade of A in a full year of high school calculus may begin with either MATH UN1102 CALCULUS II or MATH UN1201 CALCULUS III. Note that such students who decide to start with Calculus III may still need to take Calculus II since it is a requirement or prerequisite for other courses. In particular, they MUST take Calculus II before going on to MATH UN1202 CALCULUS IV. Students with a score of 5 on the BC exam may begin with Calculus III and do not need to take Calculus II.
Those with a score of 4 or 5 on the AB exam or 4 on the BC exam may receive 3 points of AP credit upon completion of Calculus II with a grade of C or higher. Those students with a score of 5 on the BC exam may receive 6 points of AP credit upon completion of Calculus III with a grade of C or higher.
Accelerated Multivariable Calculus
Students with a score of 5 on the AP BC exam or 7 on the IB HL exam may begin with MATH UN1205 ACCELERATED MULTIVARIABLE CALC. Upon completion of this course with a grade of C or higher, they may receive 6 points of AP credit.
Honors Mathematics A
Students who want a prooforiented theoretical sequence and have a score of 5 on the BC exam may begin with MATH UN1207 HONORS MATHEMATICS A, which is especially designed for mathematics majors. Upon completion of this course with a grade of C or higher, they may receive 6 points of AP credit.
Transfer Inside the Calculus Sequences
Students who wish to transfer from one calculus course to another are allowed to do so beyond the date specified on the Academic Calendar. They are considered to be adjusting their level, not changing their program. However, students must obtain the approval of the new instructor and their advising dean prior to reporting to the Office of the Registrar.
Grading
No course with a grade of D or lower can count toward the major, interdepartmental major, minor, or concentration.
Double Counting
Students who are doing a double major should review the College Bulletin's policy on Double Counting Courses towards Requirements. In general, courses in the Calculus sequence may be counted towards both majors, with up to two additional MATH UN2xxx or higher level courses at the discretion of all approving departments. Students pursuing a minor may double count at most one additional MATH UN2xxx or higher level course.
Planning Forms
Planning forms for all programs are available on our website. These forms should be completed and approved by a department adviser early in the semester of the expected graduation date.
Course Numbering Structure
 10002000 Level courses are intended to be introductory courses (such as the Calculus sequence and Linear Algebra).
 30004000 Level courses cover more advanced mathematics, as well as supervised readings, undergraduate seminars, and senior theses.
 5000 Level courses are Master’s level courses.
 6000 Level and above are PhD level courses.
Guidance for FirstYear Students
The systematic study of mathematics begins with one of the following three alternative calculus and linear algebra sequences:
Code  Title  Points 

MATH UN1101  MATH UN1102  MATH UN1201  MATH UN1202  MATH UN2010  CALCULUS I and CALCULUS II and CALCULUS III and CALCULUS IV and LINEAR ALGEBRA  
OR  
MATH UN1101  MATH UN1102  MATH UN1205  MATH UN2010  CALCULUS I and CALCULUS II and ACCELERATED MULTIVARIABLE CALC and LINEAR ALGEBRA  
OR  
MATH UN1101  MATH UN1102  MATH UN1207  MATH UN1208  CALCULUS I and CALCULUS II and HONORS MATHEMATICS A and HONORS MATHEMATICS B 
Credit is allowed for only one calculus and linear algebra sequence.
Calculus I, II is a standard course in singlevariable differential and integral calculus; Calculus III, IV is a standard course in multivariable differential and integral calculus; Accelerated Multivariable Calculus is an accelerated course in multivariable differential and integral calculus.
While Calculus II is no longer a prerequisite for Calculus III, students are strongly urged to take it before taking Calculus III. In particular, students thinking of majoring or concentrating in mathematics or one of the joint majors involving mathematics should take Calculus II before taking Calculus III. Note that Calculus II is a prerequisite for Accelerated Multivariable Calculus, and both Calculus II and Calculus III are prerequisites for Calculus IV.
The third sequence, Honors Mathematics A/B, is for exceptionally wellqualified students who have strong Advanced Placement scores. It covers multivariable calculus (MATH UN1201 CALCULUS III  MATH UN1202 CALCULUS IV) and linear algebra (MATH UN2010 LINEAR ALGEBRA), with an emphasis on theory.
Guidance for Transfer Students
Consideration for AP, IB and transfer credit is as follows:
Equivalent to MATH UN1101 Calculus I:
 A score of 4 on the Calculus BC Advanced Placement exam.
 A score of 4 or 5 on the Calculus AB Advanced Placement exam.
 A score of 6 on the IB Mathematics: analysis and approaches HL exam (2021 or later) or a score of 6 on the IB HL Mathematics or Further Mathematics exams (2020 or earlier).
 A score of 6 or 7 on the IB Mathematics: applications and interpretation HL exam (2021 or later) or a score of 6 or 7 on the IB SL Mathematics exam (2020 or earlier). This does not include the IB “Mathematical Studies SL” exam.
 An A on the ALevel Mathematics exam or a B in ALevel Further Mathematics exam in the U.K.
 A grade of A in a full year of high school calculus.
Equivalent to MATH 1101 Calculus I and MATH 1102 Calculus II:
 A score of 5 on the Calculus BC Advanced Placement.
 A score of 7 on the IB Mathematics: analysis and approaches HL exam (2021 or later) or a score of 7 on the IB HL Mathematics or Further Mathematics exams (2020 or earlier).
 An A on the ALevel Further Mathematics exam in the U.K.

Minor in Mathematics
The Minor in Mathematics aims to provide students with a solid foundation of mathematical concepts. The program focuses on essential coursework, including multivariable calculus and linear algebra.
The minor functions as a complement to a number of closely related majors, including physics, economics, and computer science. Designed for accessibility, the minor emphasizes foundational understanding rather than proofbased courses, distinguishing it from the comprehensive Mathematics major.
Students in economics, computer science, statistics, physics, and similar natural science programs such as biology and climate science may be particularly interested in the minor. However, its versatile skillset extends beyond these disciplines. Students in language programs, art, and other humanities can also benefit from the minor's quantitative proficiency, enhancing their studies and future career prospects.
Students start with the minor requirements, e.g. with advanced placement sufficient to start the Multivariable Calculus/Linear Algebra component. Upon completion of the minor, students will have acquired the skills and knowledge to carry out basic and advanced computations, formulate and solve problems, both internal to mathematics and arising from real world applications.
The minor consists of 1517 points, as follows:
 Multivariable calculus
 Linear Algebra

Three approved elective courses (at least 9 points), two of which must be 2000+ level courses offered by the Mathematics department. The third course may either be an additional course in Math, or selected from a list of approved cognate courses^{1}. Only one Undergraduate Seminar in Mathematics (MATH UN3951 UNDERGRADUATE SEMINARS I or MATH UN3952 UNDERGRADUATE SEMINARS II) may count towards the minor requirements.

Minor in Mathematical Probability
Probability Theory is a core mathematical subject with deep connections to a wide variety of disciplines. Many fundamental probabilistic concepts and problems stem from such fruitful interactions, from material sciences (e.g. percolation) to social sciences and computer science (e.g. random networks).The Minor in Mathematical Probability is a focused minor aiming at providing students majoring in these disciplines with a solid mathematical foundation organized around the probabilistic concepts pertinent to their main program of study. The transversal nature of probability both in science at large, and in terms of university structure, is underlined by the option of satisfying some core and elective requirements in other departments, such as Statistics and Industrial Engineering and Operation Research.
The minor naturally complements programs of study in natural and social sciences. As a focused minor, it also provides students with precise guidance on choices of coursework with direct relevance to and synergy with their major.
Students start with the minor requirements, e.g. with advanced placement sufficient to start the Multivariable Calculus/Linear Algebra component. Upon completion of the minor, students will have acquired core mathematical skillsets motivated and illustrated by interactions with other disciplines, organized around theoretical and applied probability. The specialized structure and designation of the minor may also benefit career and professional development.
The minor consists of 1517 points, as follows:
 Multivariable calculus

MATH UN2015 Linear Algebra and Probability. 3.00 points.
Linear algebra with a focus on probability and statistics. The course covers the standard linear algebra topics: systems of linear equations, matrices, determinants, vector spaces, bases, dimension, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, the Spectral Theorem and singular value decompositions. It also teaches applications of linear algebra to probability, statistics and dynamical systems giving a background sufficient for higher level courses in probability and statistics. The topics covered in the probability theory part include conditional probability, discrete and continuous random variables, probability distributions and the limit theorems, as well as Markov chains, curve fitting, regression, and pattern analysis. The course contains applications to life sciences, chemistry, and environmental life sciences. No a prior i background in the life sciences is assumed. This course is best suited for students who wish to focus on applications and practical approaches to problem solving. It is recommended to students majoring in engineering, technology, life sciences, social sciences, and economics. Math majors, joint majors, and math concentrators must take MATH UN2010 Linear Algebra, which focuses on linear algebra concepts and foundations that are needed for upperlevel math courses. MATH UN2015 (Linear Algebra and Probability) does NOT replace MATH UN2010 (Linear Algebra) as prerequisite requirements of math courses. Students may not receive full credit for both courses MATH UN2010 and MATH UN2015

MATH GU4200 MATHEMATICS AND THE HUMANITIES. 4.00 points.
This course is being taught by two senior faculty members who are theorists and practitioners in disciplines as different as mathematics and literary criticism. The instructors believe that in today's world, the different ways in which theoretical mathematics and literary criticism mold the imaginations of students and scholars, should be brought together, so that the robust ethical imagination that is needed to combat the disintegration of our world can be produced. Except for the length of novels, the reading is no more than 100 pages a week. Our general approach is to keep alive the disciplinary differences between literary/philosophical (humanities) reading and mathematical writing. Some preliminary questions we have considered are: the survival skills of the logicist school over against the Foundational Crisis of the early 20th century; by way of Wittgenstein and others, we ask, Are mathematical objects real? Or are they linguistic conventions? We will consider the literary/philosophical use of mathematics, often by imaginative analogy; and the role of the digital imagination in the humanities: Can socalled creative work as well as mathematics be written by machines? Guest faculty from other departments will teach with us to help students and instructors understand various topics. We will close with how a novel animates “science” in prose, stepping out of the silo of disciplinary mathematics to the arena where mathematics is considered a codename for science: Christine BrookeRose’s novel Subscript
