In addition to the requirements below for the BS in Mathematics, students need to satisfy the general requirements for a bachelor’s degree.
To graduate with a BS in Mathematics, students must complete 56 credits of required courses as follows:
- MATH 200 Mathematics and Infinity
- MATH 272 Discrete Mathematics
- MATH 281 Calculus 1
- MATH 282 Calculus 2
- MATH 283 Calculus 3
- MATH 286 Linear Algebra 1
- MATH 351 Probability
- CS 201 Computer Programming 1
- 8 units of computer science courses numbered 203 or higher
- MATH 490 Senior Project
Plus 12 credits of electives chosen from the following courses:
- any mathematics course numbered 267 or higher
- any physics course numbered 210 or higher
- any computer science course numbered 203 or higher
- any chemistry course numbered 201 or higher
- any biology course numbered 260 or higher
- Note: Math courses numbered 299, 399, and 499 may or may not be used towards the above requirements, depending on the content.
- Take an assessment test to be chosen by the Department of Mathematics, and submit the results to the Department of Mathematics. Students who have taken the general Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may satisfy this requirement by simply submitting their GRE results to the Department of Mathematics. Students not taking the GRE will need to consult the Department of Mathematics to determine an appropriate test.
