The BS is designed for students interested in continuing studies in math intensive fields after graduation. By completing the core, students will develop knowledge and skills in the major areas of mathematics (discrete and continuous, deterministic and probabilistic). By designing a concentration, students will explore in depth mathematics of their own choosing. 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 complex problem solving.
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.
|Mathematics B.S. Major Requirements||56|
|Integrative Core Curriculum Requirements 1||28-40|
An overall GPA of C (2.00) or above is required in mathematics courses that are being used to fulfill the minimum course requirements for the mathematics major. No more than one passing grade below C- in mathematics courses may be used.
