Mathematics is many things to many people. It is the language of the natural sciences, it is the means of quantifying data in the social sciences, it is the theoretical background of computing, it is the means of communication in industry. It is also a subject studied for its own sake. Pure mathematics attempts to find order where others see chaos, to find intrinsic relations and patterns among seemingly disparate types of problems. In this way mathematics branches into pure and applied, to statistics and operations research. The mathematics curriculum offers a selection of courses, which while drawing on classical mathematics, enhances the study of physics, chemistry,  engineering, computer science and economics.

Bachelor of Science

The Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics will develop a level of skill that will enable the student to apply this knowledge in industry or teaching, as well as prepare the  student for advanced study of mathematics.

A total of 130 credits is required for the bachelor's degree in mathematics. Students may be exempted from the MATH 131 requirement by passing a placement examination.

Core Curriculum (40 credits)
The science requirements of the core curriculum electives are satisfied by the collateral requirements of the major.

Electives (15 credits)
Courses to be chosen in consultation with the adviser, excluding MATH 100, MATH 101. ECON 216 and ECON 316 cannot be used to satisfy electives by math majors.

Minor in Mathematics

The aim of the minor in Mathematics is to acquaint non-mathematics majors with the diversity of the field, as well as to provide them with concepts and techniques relevant to their own fields and provide a foundation for further study.

Requirements  (15 credits)
For non-science majors: MATH 233, MATH 303, and three of the following: MATH 232, 305, 306, 308, 310, 401, 403.

For science majors: Five 300-level or 400-level Mathematics courses, including at least two of the following: MATH 303, 304, 305,306.

Minor in Applied Probability and Statistics

The aim of the minor in Applied Probability and Statistics is to acquaint mathematics and non-mathematics majors with this important field, to provide a foundation for further studies, and to meet the growing demand (from industrial, business and governmental agencies) for graduates with knowledge in applied probability and statistics.

Requirements  (15 credits)

MATH 112, MATH 306 and MATH 307, and two courses from the following: MATH 404, 405, 406.
