The Department of Mathematics offers a four-year program in mathematics that leads to the bachelor of science degree and curriculum that leads to a minor in mathematics. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of three groups of students: (1) those who plan to seek employment in business, industry, or government, (2) those who plan to attend graduate school to continue their study of mathematics or a related field, and (3) those who plan to be secondary school teachers.

Students majoring in mathematics are encouraged to use their elective hours to complete a second major, or at least a concentration of 18 hours or more, in the field of their choice. For example, students interested in computer science are advised to complete the following courses: COMS 1403, 2003, 2104, 2203, 2213, and two additional courses selected from 3213, 3503, 3803, and 4203. Students interested in business electives are advised to complete BUAD 2003, 2033, ACCT 2003, 2013, and ECON 2003 and 2013. For other areas of interest, students should consult their advisor to arrange a plan of study.

Students who plan to attend graduate school in mathematics or a related field are advised to complete additional upper-level mathematics courses beyond the minimal degree requirements.

The curriculum in mathematics for teacher licensure is found in the College of Education section of this catalog.
