Mathematics Degree Requirements

The department offers four different degrees in mathematics: a Bachelor of Sciences in Mathematics, a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics, a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics with a teaching emphasis, and Bachelor of Sciences in Applied Mathematics.

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics is designed to prepare students for graduate studies in mathematics:

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics:

MATH 1073: Discrete Mathematics I
MATH 2014: Calculus I
MATH 2024: Calculus II
MATH 2343: Fundamentals of Mathematical Proof
MATH 3034: Calculus III
MATH 3053: Abstract Algebra I
MATH 3093: Linear Algebra
MATH 4023: Introduction to Real Analysis
MATH 4463: Mathematical Scholarship

One course chosen from:

Three additional Junior/Senior hours in Mathematics.

CSCI 1044: Programming I

One course chosen from:

  • CHEM 1004: General Chemistry I
  • PHYS 2054: University Physics I

The student must also complete a minor in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, or Physics.


The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics is designed to provide flexibility in scheduling, especially for students wanting to pair their mathematics major with additional study of a discipline outside of the natural sciences:

Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics:

MATH 1073: Discrete Mathematics I
