The Mathematics major is designed for students interested in mathematics-oriented careers in industry, education, and government, and for those students interested in pursuing advanced studies in mathematics.
Admission to the Program
Admission is through a formal declaration of major and the successful completion of MAT 241 and MAT 242.
Requirements for Major in Mathematics
Mathematics majors must meet their general education science requirements using laboratory science courses at the level of majors in that discipline (BI 141, BIL 141; CH 141, 141L; or PH 251, PHL 251).
Math majors MUST choose an directed field of study as approved by the Mathematics Department (at lest 12 credits) in a field complimenting their long range professional goals. Math majors wishing to complete a minor must take an additional 6 hours in their directed field of study.
GE = General Education Courses
Math majors must complete the two-semester laboratory science sequence in BI 141 and BI 142, or CH 141 and CH 142, or PH 251 and PH 252. If the PH sequence is chosen, students should move Junior year directed elective courses to the Sophomore year and Ethics to the Freshman year.
