Mathematics Major (B.A.)
The bachelor of arts degree with the mathematics major may offer a broader liberal arts program than the bachelor of science degree programs. By a careful selection of electives, students can shape this major into a preparation for graduate school, business, or industry.
In all courses used to satisfy the requirements for its major programs, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics requires that a student earn a grade of C- or better and have an overall grade-point average of at least 2.00 in these courses.
