In recent years, teaching and research in nearly every field of study have become increasingly dependent on Mathematics and quantitative thinking. Therefore, Mathematics is many things to many people. It is the language of the natural sciences, it is a tool for analyzing data in the social sciences, it is the theoretical background of computing, it is a medium of communication in industry, and, of course, it is also a fascinating subject studied for its own sake. Mathematics branches into pure and applied. Pure mathematics attempts to find order where others see chaos, to find intrinsic relations and patterns among seemingly disparate types of problems. Applied Mathematics is concerned with problem solving approaches and techniques such as the design and analysis of experiments; statistics and data analysis; mathematical modeling; optimization and operations research. Consequently, mathematics curriculum offers a selection of courses, which while drawing on classical mathematics, enhances the study of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, computer science business, economics and other social sciences.
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, and other fields.
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.

Minor in Mathematics
The minor in Mathematics will acquaint nonmathematics majors with the diversity of the field and enhance the student's ability to formulate and solve problems in other disciplines.
Requirements (15 credits) For nonscience majors: MATH 233, MATH 303, and three of the following: MATH 232, 305, 306, 308, 310, 401, 403.
For science majors: Any five 300level or 400level Mathematics courses.
Minor in Applied Probability and Statistics
Since Applied Probability and Statistics are essential tools for analyzing data in various fields; a minor in Applied Probability and Statistics will prepare students and enhance their abilities to understand and solve problems in their own major fields. The minor in Applied Probability and Statistics is also designed to meet a demand by industry and governmental agencies for personnel who are able to utilize appropriate statistical and other quantitative methods to solve problems as diverse as quality control and population dynamics and to facilitate wise decision making in the face of uncertainty.
Requirements (15 credits) MATH 112, MATH 306 and MATH 307, and two courses from the following: MATH 404, 405, 406.
