Additional Free Electives
Students must complete at least 39 credit hours of upper division course work overall.
Select 12-24 credit hours of additional free Electives.
Carryover from Area A2(1) if MATH 1113 is taken in Area A2.
Total Credit Hours: 124
1 While MATH 1441 Calculus I is 4 credit hours, only 3 credit hours will count toward fulfilling Area A2. The remaining credit hour will be applied toward Area F.
2 MATH 1441 Calculus I if not taken in Area A2, otherwise MATH 2242 Calculus II is recommended
Other Program Requirements
- A minimum grade of “C” is required for each CSCI, MATH, and STAT course taken in the major. This applies to all courses (lower and upper division). The mathematics major may not subsequently take for credit toward graduation a lower level MATH or STAT course after earning credit hour for a course that has the lower level course as a prerequisite (except by advisor’s permission).
- Students must successfully complete the Major Field Test as a departmental exit exam.
Honors in Mathematical Sciences
To graduate with Honors in Mathematical Sciences, a student must:
- be admitted to the Honor College at least three semesters prior to graduation;
- successfully complete MATH 4825 Honors Research for two semesters and MATH 4929 Honors Thesis for a total of six credit hours;
- be in good standing in the Honor College at the time of graduation.
Note: Students earning the B.S. with a major in Mathematical Sciences and “Honors in Mathematical Sciences” may use the six credit hours earned through MATH 4825 Honors Research and MATH 4929 Honors Thesis as part of the Mathematics Electives. Therefore, these students will select four courses instead of six courses from the Mathematics Electives.
