  • Course description

    The program leading to the degree of  Bachelor of Science in Mathematics  is designed to introduce students to the major aspects of contemporary mathematics.

    By selecting appropriate electives students may become well prepared either for positions in industry or for graduate study in mathematics and related disciplines. The mathematics major can prepare for a career in actuarial science, operations research, computer science, statistics, biostatistics, mathematical physics or any of many other areas which use mathematics.

    Mathematics Major Requirements

    The following courses are required of Mathematics majors:
    • MAT 1500  - Calculus I
    • MAT 1505  - Calculus II
    • MAT 2500  - Calculus III
    • MAT 2600  - Foundation of Math I
    • MAT 2705  - Diff Equation with Linear Alg
    • MAT 3300  - Advanced Calculus
    • MAT 3400  - Linear Algebra
    • MAT 3500  - Modern Algebra I
    • MAT 5900  - Seminar in Mathematics


    Additional Requirements

    In addition, Mathematics majors must select:
    1. one approved upper level analysis course
    2. four other mathematics courses numbered 3000 or above
    3. a two-semester sequence of natural science courses with a lab at the science-major level,

    We strongly urge students to take:

    Physics sequence:
    • PHY 2410  - University Phy:Mechanics and  PHY 2411  - Lab: Mechanics , 
      and
    • PHY 2412  - Univ Physics: Elec & Mag and  PHY 2413  - Lab: Elec & Magnetism

    but will allow one of the following 3 sequences:

    Biology sequence:
    • BIO 2105  - General Biology I and  BIO 2102  - General Biology I Lab
    • BIO 2106  - General Biology II and  BIO 2104  - General Biology II Lab

    Chemistry sequence:
    • CHM 1151  - General Chemistry I and
    • CHM 1152  - General Chemistry II and  CHM 1104  - General Chemistry Lab II 
      or
    • AST 2122  - Galaxies and Cosmology and  AST 1073  - Stellar Lab
    • AST 2121  - Solar System Astronomy and  AST 1075  - Planets Lab
    • one additional science course at the science-major level with lab if appropriate e.g.:
      • PHY 2414  - Univ Physics: Thermo
      • PHY 2415  - Lab: Thermodynamics or
      • CSC 1051  - Algorithms & Data Struc I
    • In addition, the  core requirements  for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences must be fulfilled.
