Diagnostic
We are excited that you are interested in taking a math class at UVA! It's important to find a good starting place so that we can best support your learning. We have a couple of questions to help you figure out what's next.
What Math courses do I need?
First, you will want to think about what major you are considering and the introductory mathematics courses you should take. Here's a list of some majors and courses they require.
Three pathways through our introductory courses
- Do you need to fulfill a quantitative reasoning requirement and don't need a calculus-based course for your major? We offer MATH 1110: Probability/Finite Mathematics , MATH 1140 Financial Mathematics, MATH 1150 The Shape of Space, and MATH 1160 Algebra, Number Systems and Number Theory.
Next Step The next step is the diagnostic for Path 1 and more information about these courses is here.
- Are you interested in business, biology, a social science, or need to fulfill pre-health requirements? Path 2 includes Differential and Integral Calculus for non-STEM majors via Math 1190, Math 1210, and Math 1220
Next Step The next step is the diagnostic for Path 2 and more information about these courses is here.
- Are you interested in one of the natural sciences, engineering, mathematics or doing graduate work in one of the social sciences? Path 3 includes Differential Calculus Integral Calculus and Multivariable Calculus. We offer Math 1310, 1320 and Math 2310 for this path.
