This document lists the beginning math sequence for each major. Some majors require additional math courses, and some allow different sequences. See MSU catalog for complete degree requirements. Students needing developmental math, who pursue these majors, must follow the M063 path on the flowchart. Please see the Math Flowchart for course prerequisites for all math courses. Students with questions should talk with their academic advisor or an advisor in the Academic Advising Center (406)-994-3532.
