MAJOR IN MATHEMATICS (Bachelor of Arts)

A student majoring in mathematics must complete 46 quarter hours in the major. In addition, the student must complete the required cognates, the general studies program, and all baccalaureate degree requirements as outlined in this bulletin. Senior students are required to take the Major Field Achievement Test (MFAT) in mathematics.
 
Major Requirements:

_______
46
Electives must be chosen in consultation with and approved by the academic adviser assigned by the department chair. Credit will not be given toward the major for mathematics courses with numbers below 181. Students seeking a teaching endorsement shouldconsult with the certification officer in the Education and PsychologyDepartment.
