Advising

Current Math Majors/Minors 

 

Who are we and what is our role?

The Math department has three academic advisors: Dr. Enid SteinbartDr. Hunter Lehmann, and Dr. Kalila Lehmann. As advisors, our role is not just to help you with your schedule and class choices, but to also help you assess where your strengths lie and what your long-term goals with your degree are. Through these conversations with you, we will expose you to opportunities that align with your interests, and help you with planning ahead so you can fit them in your degree plan. 

 

Who should you go to for advice?

Even though we are always available to you for advice, one of us is assigned to be your primary advisor. The idea is for you to treat your primary advisor as your first point of contact. This allows us to build strong advising relationships with you, which in turn help us to better guide you. If your primary advisor is unavailable, you can always reach out to another advisor! Note that Dr. Steinbart advises all discrete math majors.

We are glad that you are considering adding a math major or a math minor! To get started on the process, you will need to first meet with your current major advisor, and inform that you are considering adding Math.

To add a math minor, you will need to fill out a change of minor form which can be accessed here.

These forms need to be signed by your current major advisor.

Undergraduate Research

Students can pursue research with a faculty member for a full semester (Spring, Summer, or Fall).  This effort can be for course credit and is recorded as MATH 2699 or MATH 4699.  If the student is paid, course credit is not awarded, but the course will show up on your transcript as MATH 4698.  See more information about MATH 2699/4699 Undergraduate Research is here .

If you are being paid for research, course credit is not awarded. In this situation, you may take Math 4698 (research assistantship) but are NOT required to do so. The advantage is that the course would appear on the transcript. The disadvantage is that if you are a HOPE scholar, they may count the course against your hours and this may reduce your subsequent support from them. The course must be audited, rather than taken for credit.
