The department offers majors and minors in Mathematics. These programs will prepare students for graduate school, careers, or employment in relevant professions. Course selections to advance the student toward these goals are made with the help of the student's adviser.
Major: The student majoring in Mathematics must complete MATH 170, 171, 185, 247, 261, 272, 310, 470, 484, and 485; and 8 credit hours in one of the following at the 200 level or above: Biology, Chemistry, or Physics.
BA in Mathematics: The student must take an additional 12 credit hours of MATH at the 300 level or above and 3 credit hours of MATH at the 400 level or above, as well as complete the University requirements for a B.A. degree.
BS in Mathematics: The student must complete either Option 1 (Pure Track) or Option 2 (Applied Track), and the University requirements for a B.S. degree in Mathematics. Option 1 (Pure Track) consists of MATH 376, 440, 480, 3 additional credits at the 200 level or above, and 3 additional credits at the 300 level or above. Option 2 (Applied Track) consists of 6 credits from MATH 330, 336 and 350, an additional 6 credits at the 300 level or above, and an additional 3 credits at the 400 level.
As a graduation requirement of the major, a student must have both a GPA of 2.0 for all courses in the major, as well as a GPA of 2.0 in all upper-division (300 level or above) mathematics courses. Only the highest grade a student earns in each course will be used in calculating these GPAs.
A Mathematics minor consists of MATH 170, 171, and 272, and at least 6 hours of MATH electives at the 200 level or above.
