The BA Mathematics Program provides students with instruction in the basic techniques, applications, and theories of mathematics. Consequently, all BA mathematics majors must complete the Departmental Core and four courses in advanced mathematical theory. Beyond this, students choose from electives, which are designed to complement another major or minor, prepare for future graduate work in the sciences, or provide coursework that is specific to the needs of industry. Students must earn a grade of “C” or higher in all required departmental courses.
Students currently majoring or planning to major in other disciplines are strongly urged to consider adding a major or minor in mathematics as a useful means of preparing for professional exams, such as the MCAT; as a way of creating an undergraduate program that sets the student apart from others in that discipline when competing for future employment; and as a way of increasing options for future graduate work.
Departmental Core (23 S.H.)
Techniques of Continuous Mathematics – MATH (12 S.H.)
A student will be classified as a major in both mathematics (B.A.) and statistics if the student completes the Departmental Core and the required courses for a statistics major in addition to the following MATH courses:
