Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The B.S. program in mathematics is designed to prepare our students to pursue graduate work in pure or applied mathematics and to provide the background which will enable them to use mathematics in the behavioral sciences as well as in more technical areas.

The course of study leading to the B.S. with a major in mathematics includes 24 semester hours of general electives. The required courses are 4 semester hours of computer science (CSCI 201) and the following 37 semester hours of core mathematics: MATH 131, MATH 132, MATH 206, MATH 231, MATH 234, MATH 240, MATH 303, STAT 361, MATH 403, MATH 470, and MATH 495. In addition, the student must select 12 hours of Approved (Mathematics) Electives from among the mathematics courses numbered at the 300 or 400 level.
