Mathematics, B.S.

Students earning the bachelor of science in Mathematics will develop a foundational understanding of Calculus, Algebra, and Real Analysis along with electives in related areas that will prepare them to pursue a career or graduate study in an area that requires the ability to analyze problems mathematically.  Many students in the major complete internships in the region.

In order to remain in the program, students who have declared the major in Mathematics must maintain satisfactory progress toward completion of the major by completing MT 136 Calculus II with a Calculus grade point average of at least 2.5 by the end of the fall semester of the second year, and completing  MT 301 Methods in Pure Mathematics with a grade of C- or better by the end of the second year.

Students may not earn both the major in Mathematics and the major in Teaching Mathematics.
