|College||Science, Engineering & Technology|
|Undergraduate Degree Type(s)||BS, BA|
|Program Description||Mathematics in its purest form is an art concerned with ideas. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics believes that an undergraduate major should be both an introduction to more advanced study and a survey of the many facets of mathematics.
Unlike many other disciplines, mathematics is a very structured subject. Consequently, the curriculum consists of sequences of interrelated courses which must be taken in the appropriate order. The courses in mathematics are organized with the needs of three groups of students in mind:
|Admission Requirements||Admission to major is required for enrollment in 300 and 400 level courses. Requirements for admission are:Application for admission forms are available in the College Advising Center, Trafton C-125.|
|Other Requirements||All students majoring in mathematics should complete Calculus (Math 121, 122, 223), Linear Algebra (Math 247) and Foundations (Math 290) as preparation for more advanced courses. Mathematics majors not preparing for teacher licensure are also required to complete two of the following three courses: Intermediate Analysis (Math 316), Abstract Algebra (Math 345) and Discrete Mathematics (Math 375). Students also take Math 492 during their senior year.
In addition students should choose 12 credits as electives from Math 316, 321, 332, 345, 375, 392, 411, 417, 418, 422, 425, 435, 442, 446, 447, 455, 456, 470, 471, 480 and 496.
