With logical thinking, students will be able to apply their knowledge, using creative problem solving techniques, to the area of theoretical mathematics as well as numerous other quantitative disciplines. The combination of mathematical reasoning, logical organization, and problem solving makes a Mathematics major attractive to potential employers from various fields. The Mathematics major aims to:
The major on Mathematics may lead to either the B.A. or the B.S. degree.
Requirements for the B.S. in Mathematics
Five additional MATH courses at or beyond the 300level. Five additional CSCI courses (excluding CSCI 140C, 150, 170, 220, 250, 260). PHYS 131C and 132C and three additional courses in Biology, Chemistry or Physics at or beyond the 200level. Five courses in Biology, Chemistry or Physics, three of which must be at or beyond the 200level.
Requirements for the B.A. in Mathematics
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree must also declare a minor in another discipline. Students should meet with their Mathematics advisor to select an appropriate minor. Additional Requirements for Mathematics Majors seeking Adolescence Teaching CertificationStudents pursuing teaching certification are advised to pursue the B.A. in Mathematics program and must complete the following specific requirements:
For students majoring in Mathematics, only courses designated as mathematics (MATH) courses are included in the determination of the grade point average in the major. Note: Students intending to major in mathematics who have not had the equivalent of advanced algebra in high school are advised to take MATH 119C 120C and 170 in their first year, and MATH 122C, 200C, 222, and 232 in their second year.
Recommended progression of courses required for a B.S. Mathematics major. Students should consult "Core Requirements" for a complete description of the College's core curriculum.
