Mathematics (MATH) - BS Major

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Colleges & Departments

65-67 S.H. (no minor required)

2.0 GPA required.

C grade or better required in major courses unless otherwise noted.

The BS Mathematics Program provides students with an extended program in the techniques, applications, and theories of mathematics. Consequently, all BS mathematics majors must complete a significant amount of course work beyond the Departmental Core. These additional courses are designed to expose the student to a diverse range of mathematical topics, provide in-depth rigorous study in a focused area, and supply the experience of an independent project. The BS Mathematics major is designed to prepare students for graduate school in mathematics or other technical disciplines.

Professional Skills (6 S.H.)

An independent project in mathematics is required for all students earning a bachelor’s in mathematics. The project will address a topic that is significantly beyond the standard undergraduate curriculum and will result in a product that is disseminated both orally and in written form.


† This course is only offered by arrangement. Students should coordinate with their academic advisor during their sophomore year to complete this requirement. Students are required to complete a total of 3 S.H. of MATH 490 - Independent Problems in Mathematics , possibly taken over the course of several semesters. Students completing an independent project in a summer research program or an internship in mathematics or in another technical discipline may, in close consultation with their academic advisors, choose to substitute an additional MATH elective course (numbered ◆ MATH 347 - Number Theory  or above) for this requirement.

Electives (9 S.H.)

Choose at least 3 S.H. from List A, at least 3 S.H. from List B, and at least 3 S.H. of upper division mathematics.

Programming Elective (3-4 S.H.)

Choose one:


◎ = Oral Intensive

◆ = Math/Critical Analysis Intensive

△ = Writing Intensive

✽ = Physical Development and Wellness Graduation Requirement

= Civic Engagement and Service Learning
