Mathematics is a broad discipline that contains a range of areas of specialization within it. The required core courses provide fundamental background for mathematics in general. The concentrations allow the student to broaden this background or begin to specialize. Students must complete the core courses and a concentration.

An entering student in mathematics should have academic preparation to enroll in MATH 220 during the first semester. Admission to MATH 220 requires an acceptable ALEKS score. A student should attain grades of B in calculus in order to complete the advanced courses successfully.

for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts & Sciences Major in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics Concentration

A Major Plan of Study form, declaring concentration and supporting coursework, must be completed and submitted to the LAS Student Academic Affairs Office except for students in the Teaching of Mathematics concentration.  Please complete this form with an advisor in the Mathematics Undergraduate Office within 1-2 semesters of completing MATH 347 or MATH 348.

Departmental distinction: Distinction will be awarded on the basis of selection of 400-level courses in mathematics and the grade point average. Graduation with High Distinction or Highest Distinction in Mathematics requires participation in the Program for Distinction in Mathematics or Mathematics Education.  Full details are available at the departmental website.

General education: Students must complete the Campus General Education requirements including the campus general education language requirement.

Minimum required major and supporting course work: Normally equates to 46-57 hours including 27-35 hours of mathematics beyond calculus, 3-4 hours of computer science, and 12 hours of supporting coursework.

Twelve hours of 300- and 400-level in the major must be taken on this campus.

Minimum hours required for graduation: 120 hours.
