declaring a Math major require approval from the Mathematics Department.
The approval is routine, consisting simply of a check that a reasonable
number of Math courses have been successfully completed, based on
the number of quarters of registration.
Declare Math as a major
on Axess. This will put
your name on a ‘pending’ list. Major declarations are reviewed every few weeks. Shortly after our review,
you will receive an e-mail message from the department. You will
be asked if you want to choose a faculty adviser or have one appointed.
Your adviser can be any member of the Mathematics Department faculty.
The Department expects students
to be familiar with all Math degree requirements described in the
current Stanford Bulletin. Other information may be found on the
Department web site.
Students with a double major or
a minor should be aware that the only courses that the Math
Department allows to be double counted are the Math 50 or 50H series
and first year calculus. If the constraints on double counting become
a problem, a student has the option of declaring Math as a secondary
major which allows unlimited double counting.
