Undergraduate Program

Major | Minor | Honors | Research | Resources


Department requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and the honors program can be found here.

The department requirements are in addition to the University's basic requirements for undergraduate degrees which can be found here.


Department requirements for the minor in Mathematics can be found here.


Honors Math majors must complete the basic 64 unit program required of all majors. An additional 6 units of Math 197, Senior Thesis, (typically spaced over two quarters) is required. Click here for details (under "Honors Program" towards the bottom of the page).

It is strongly recommended that the 50s honors sequence (Math 51H, 52H and 53H) be taken during the student's freshman year. This is a recommendation, not a requirement.

Stanford Undergraduate Research Institute in Mathematics

The Stanford Undergraduate Research Institute in Mathematics (SURIM) is ten week program that provides Stanford undergraduates the opportunity to work on mathematical problems in an extra-curricular context. Most students will work on interesting mathematical problems in a collaborative environment. A number will work one-on-one with faculty member. Summer funding will be available for some students, thanks to VPUE; others will obtain course credit in the fall quarter for participating.
Application deadline: March 1, 2013
