## The Undergraduate Program in Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics prides itself in offering an excellent
curriculum at the undergraduate level. It allows students to take courses
in both theoretical and applied mathematics. Courses at the undergraduate
level include introductory analysis, differential equations, applied
statistics, and linear programming, just to name a few.

The Department recognizes the role of technology in the classroom, and
its courses have evolved accordingly. The use of computers and graphing
calculators are being integrated into all levels of instruction. Computer-aided
laboratory classes are available. Students in applied statistics courses
learn the uses of computer in statistical analysis. Even freshman-level
courses are integrating computer lab projects into their curriculum.

## B.A. Degree in Mathematics

Description: The Department of Mathematics offers a B.A. in mathematics
for students who wish a broad education in a mathematical field in preparation
for careers in teaching or other areas.

General Education Course Requirements: The general education/core curriculum
requirements for this program are those defined by the College of Liberal
Arts (see below).

Course Requirements: A major in mathematics for the B.A. degree requires
30 semester hours as follows: Math 261, 262, 263, 264, and 18 hours
of upper- level courses that must include 305, 319, 555, and 556. A
computer programming course (CSCI 111, 251, or 259) also is required.

Other Academic Requirements: Grades lower than C in mathematics courses
will not be counted toward the mathematics major for the B.A. degree.
Here is a list of the graduation
requirements for the B.A. degree in mathematics.

## B.S. Degree in Mathematics

Description: The Department of Mathematics offers a B.S. in mathematics
for students who wish to pursue graduate training in mathematics or
to undertake careers in mathematically oriented professions. The B.S.
degree allows the freedom to pursue mathematical depth in areas such
as pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, discrete mathematics,
mathematics and computer science, or finance and actuarial science.

General Education Course Requirements: The general education/ core curriculum
requirements for program are those defined by the College of Liberal
Arts (see below).

Course Requirements: A major in mathematics for a B.S. degree consists
of 12 semester hours in the calculus sequence and 30 hours of upper-level
courses that must include Math 305, 319, 555, and 556. A computer programming
course (CSCI 111, 251, or 259) also is required.

Other Academic Requirements: Grades lower than C in mathematics courses
will not be counted toward the mathematics major for the B.S. degree.
Here is a list of the graduation
requirements for the B.S. degree in mathematics.

## Math Minors

A minor in Mathematics consists of (1) Mathematics 261, 262, 263, 264 plus one 3-hour course at the 300-level or above; or (2) Mathematics 261, 262, 263, and 2 courses at the 300-level or above.
