Major/Minor Requirements

Students typically apply for majors and minors in the middle of the second semester of their sophomore year after they have successfully completed an appropriate amount of work in the department. 

The following links provide information about how to indicate your interest in a major or minor in the Dept of Math & Stat at the start of the sophomore planning process, and some details about how to actually do the application for this major or minor in the major/minor portal.

Note: Much of the information on these pages can also be found in the document for the next two years (the Feb 2023 or Feb 2024 version) and also in the Swarthmore Course Catalog.  The catalog takes precedence if there is conflicting information.
