Mathematical Sciences B.S.
Degree Requirements: 124 Credit Hours
See Core Curriculum for required courses in Area A1 through Area E.
|General Requirements (Core A – E)||42|
|Area A2 -- Must take MATH 1112, MATH 1113, or MATH 1441|
|Area DII -- Must take MATH 1441 if not taken in Area A2 above|
|Area F - Courses Appropriate to Major||18|
Carryover from Area A2 or Area D (1) 3 of the 4 credit hours of MATH 1441 are taken in either Area A2 or Area D
|Calculus II (or 1 hour carryover if MATH 2242 taken in Area D plus INTS 2130)|
Select one of the following Computer Science Courses or a course approved by Mathematics Advisor:
|Introduction to Java Programming|
|Programming Principles I|
|Programming Principles II|
Lab Science Course in addition to those taken in Area D
Foreign Language course(s) through 2001 or INTS 2130 if not completed above
|Ordinary Differential Equations|
|Modern Algebra I|
|Statistical Methods I|
Select six elective courses from MATH or STAT upper-level courses (3000 and above) not including MATH 3032, MATH 5130, MATH 5135, MATH 5137, MATH 5232, MATH 5530, or STAT 3130.
Additional Free Electives 3
Select 15-27 credit hours of additional free Electives
Carryover from Area A2 (1) if MATH 1113 is taken in Area A2
|Total Credit Hours||124|
While Calculus I (MATH 1441) is 4 credit hours, only 3 credit hours will count toward fulfilling Area A2. The remaining credit hour will be applied toward Area F.
Students must complete at least 39 credit hours of upper division course work overall.
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).
Honors in Mathematical Sciences
To graduate with Honors in Mathematical Sciences, a student must:
- be admitted to the University Honors Program at least three semesters prior to graduation;
- successfully complete Honors Research (MATH 4825) for two semesters and Honors Thesis (MATH 4929) for a total of six credit hours;
- be in good standing in the University Honors Program 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 Honors Research (MATH 4825) and Honors Thesis (MATH 4929) as part of the Mathematics Electives. Therefore, these students will select four courses instead of six courses from the Mathematics Electives.
