The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers six concentrations leading to the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in mathematics. Majors in any concentration are required to complete the general education requirements for the appropriate degree and are advised to select physics as one of the lab sciences. If a student is not prepared to enter calculus as the first mathematics course, the elective hours can be used to take either college algebra and trigonometry or precalculus. The completion of a minor or the professional-education courses necessary for professional licensure is required for the B.A. degree. For the B.S. degree, no minor is required. Students completing the B.S. degree with a Secondary Mathematics Concentration are required to complete the professional-education courses necessary for professional licensure.
Double majors: MATH 340/CSCI 340 may be allowed only in the requirements for a mathematics major or computer science major but not both.
One of the goals of the mathematics major is to prepare students for mathematical careers in business, government, education, or industry. To meet the various professional needs of the mathematics major, different concentrations are available within the major.
