The mathematics curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students preparing for a career in education as well as those seeking employment in industry or government or intending to pursue graduate study in mathematics. The program provides a broad foundation in computational, analytical, and humanistic aspects of mathematics and offers students an opportunity to acquire an array of advanced techniques while attaining to a deeper understanding of the universe, human culture, mathematical pedagogy, and the nature of rational inquiry. Students receive a solid grounding in logic, number theory, probability, statistics, geometry, real variables, modern algebra, and mathematics history, while exploring mathematical ideas in a collaborative environment and developing oral and written communication skills.

Majors in mathematics may obtain credit for Math 1314 and/or Math 1316 by presenting adequate scores on CLEP, DANTES, ACT, or SAT examinations as shown elsewhere in the catalog under the heading, “Credit by Examination” and are encouraged to do so.

Additional Requirements for the major in Mathematics
