Use Grad MAPs to plan your degree

Admission Requirements

Declare your program of study (see Program of Study (Major/Minor) Declaration ) with your advisor. There are no special admission or application requirements for the Regular or Applied mathematics emphases. Mathematics Teaching majors must meet the Teacher Education admission and licensure requirements (see Teacher Education Department ).

General Education

Refer to Degree Requirements  for either Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts requirements. PHYS 2210  will fulfill requirements for both the major and general education. PSY 1010  (3) in the Social Sciences area is recommended for the Mathematics Teaching emphasis.

Language Courses Required to fulfill the BA (14 credit hours)

  •  6 credit hour of foreign language

and the following language arts courses

Major Course Requirements for Mathematics BS or BA Degree

Mathematics Electives (at least 9 credit hours)

Complete any upper division Mathematics courses (not including any required courses) so that required mathematics courses and mathematics electives total at least 42 credit hours.

Graduate School Preparation

It is highly recommended that students planning on graduate work in Mathematics take Linear Algebra (MATH 3270 ) and Topology (MATH 4320 ) in addition to the above. See the Mathematics Department  for counseling.
