Mathematics | B.S. in Mathematics

Overview

Students must complete or demonstrate the following before declaring a major in Mathematics:

  1. A letter of interest sent to the Mathematics Program Director.
  2. One of the following:
    1. A grade of A in MAT 130, Precalculus, or
    2. A grade of B or higher in MAT 150, Calculus I, or
    3. A grade of C or higher in MAT 205, Calculus II.
  3. A cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
  4. A letter of recommendation from one of the student’s mathematics instructors. This letter is to focus on the student’s creativity and potential for thriving as a mathematics major.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics will prepare students for graduate school. The Bachelor of Science degree is geared toward a more science-intensive curriculum than the Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics.
