The Department of Mathematics offers two Mathematics Major programs: a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science, and two minors: a Mathematics Minor and a Mathematics for Middle School Teachers Minor. Contact Academic Advisement if you have questions: (509) 527-2132.
Bachelor of Science
Students who get a B.S. in mathematics take the math core, but then select additional classes from one of five possible “career pathways.” Career pathways include specialized mathematical classes as well as supporting classes from allied domains such as biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, and economics.
A minor in mathematics complements almost every major on campus. A minor requires 28 credits of mathematics, six of which must be upper division.
MATHEMATICS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS MINOR
This minor is for education majors who wish to teach middle school mathematics. The courses required total 33 quarter hours and reflect Washington State teaching endorsement requirements.
