Preparation for Capstones for Mathematics and Statistics Majors
All senior Mathematics and Statistics majors are required to complete a capstone course (MAT/STA 498). These courses are only offered in the Spring semester. When planning your fall schedule, you should ensure that your schedule will allow you to take the capstone course in the spring. Also, students who expect to graduate in Fall semester will need to take the capstone course in the previous Spring semester. Please make sure that you have completed the necessary course and seminar prerequisites for the capstone.
Remember that one of the prerequisites for the capstone is to attend four seminar/colloquium presentations in your junior and senior years prior to taking the capstone course.
