Mathematics Major — B.A.
The mathematics major prepares students for careers — in industry, government, and education — that require problem-solving and creative-thinking abilities. The curriculum is based on a core of required courses that provides a foundation leading to a number of upper-level options.
Policy on prerequisites: A grade of C- or better is required for a course in mathematics to fulfill a prerequisite for another mathematics course. A student must receive the permission of the mathematics department to take a mathematics course that is a prerequisite for a mathematics course for which he or she has previously received credit.
