# Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The department offers undergraduate preparation for positions in government, business, and industry and for graduate work in mathematics and statistics. Each student’s major program is individually constructed in consultation with an advisor.

Upper-division courses used to satisfy major requirements must be taken for letter grades, and only one D grade (D+ or D or D–) may be counted toward the upper-division requirement. At least 12 credits in upper-division mathematics courses must be taken in residence at the university.

Statistical Methods I (MATH 425) cannot be used to satisfy requirements for a mathematics major or minor.

To qualify for a bachelor’s degree with a major in mathematics, a student must satisfy the requirements for one of three options: the standard track, pure mathematics, or secondary teaching. In each option, most courses require calculus as a prerequisite, and in each option some of the courses require satisfying the bridge requirement.
