Mathematics Major — B.A.
The BA is a comprehensive Mathematics degree that allows students the flexibility to follow their own interests in coursework, research, and independent study. By completing the core, students will develop knowledge and skills in the major areas of mathematics (discrete and continuous, deterministic and probabilistic). In their remaining elective courses, students will be able to pursue their interests in pure or applied mathematics. The math faculty is committed to working with all students to ensure success by providing a supportive environment that stresses critical thinking, intellectual challenge, and continual encouragement.
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.
