The Department of Mathematics offers both Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Mathematics. There are several options within each degree.
The BA has two options. Option I offers a general preparation in all fields of undergraduate mathematics. This option is very versatile and allows students either to prepare for a graduate program (with appropriate electives) or for many other carreers. Option II is specifically designed for students who want to pursue a single subject teaching credential in mathematics.
The BS degree has three options. Option I provides students with the necessary course work to prepare them for graduate work in mathematics. Students have the choice of both pure and applied electives in this option. Option II prepares students for careers in statistics. Option III is a program in Applied Mathematical Sciences. It has a rather narrow core and allows great flexibility for the program to optimally fit the students career goals. Because of this flexibility this program is uniquely suited for students who choose to double major in mathematics and another field.
All options have the following lower division courses as a core requirement: MATH 150A/B, MATH 250, MATH 262 PHYS 220A, PHYS 220AL COMP 106/L or COMP 110/L.
