Requirements and Organization of Mathematics At Different Colleges

At Hofstra University, most departments have either 0, 1, 2, or 4 introductory courses for majors or minors. Mathematics is unique in that it has three introductory calculus courses, Analytic Geometry and Calculus I, Analytic Geometry and Calculus II, and Analytic Geometry and Calculus III. There is also Basic Calculus and Basic Calculus With Applications for non-majors. Mathematics majors need 9 courses beyond Analytic Geometry and Calculus III. The additional required courses are Introduction to Higher Mathematics, Linear Algebra, Higher Algebra I, Advanced Calculus I, and either Higher Algebra II or Advanced Calculus II. Four electives are required, and if you take Higher Algebra II and Advanced Calculus II that would be one elective. Calculus courses have Analytic Geometry and Calculus III as a prerequisite and many have Introduction to Higher Mathematics and/or Linear Algebra as prerequisites also. Once those courses are completed, you can take most Mathematics courses, with some exceptions such Higher Algebra I being a prerequisite for Higher Algebra II.

Hofstra offers a BA and a BS in Mathemetics. The BS requires all the BA requirements plus at least 9 credits (depending on the option) of Mathematics, Actuarial Science, Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, or Physics. All Mathematics majors must take one semester of Physics. Is it normal for Mathematics majors to need courses in other departments?
