Mathematics Major (B.S.)
This program offers the strongest concentration in mathematics, requiring courses that are intended to prepare the student for graduate work in mathematics. Through a judicious choice of electives, students may design stronger pre-graduate programs, a program in applied mathematics, or slant the program toward a career in 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.
