Degree Descriptions
The BA in Mathematics provides a broad introduction to the subject.
The requirements feature flexibility while providing an opportunity
to explore one or more areas in greater depth or to comajor in
other disciplines.
The BS in Mathematics is a more rigorous program of study which
prepares students for graduate study in mathematics and includes yearlong
sequences in algebra and analysis. Students pursuing a Mathematics BS should complete Math 250
by the end of their sophomore year.
The BS in Applied Mathematics combines the rigor of a BS degree with
an emphasis on topics in applied mathematics. It also prepares students
for graduate study in Applied Mathematics and is appropriate for
students interested in interdisciplinary graduate training in the sciences
and engineering.
All classes counting toward the degree must be taken for a letter grade. Students must meet the minimum GPA requirement of 2.0 to graduate with any major or minor from the department. Additionally, a letter grade of "D" in a prerequisite course indicates insufficient preparation for the follow up course and we recommend that you retake the course. Major/Minor GPA will be calculated using the better of the grades when a student repeats a course.
