The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to high level mathematics instruction, preparing students for careers in secondary education, actuarial science and industry, and for entrance into graduate studies in mathematics and statistics.  The Bachelor of Arts degree is often sought by future secondary education majors or by students wishing a broader exposure to the humanities.  The Bachelor of Science degree is sought by students who intend to go on to graduate studies or who would like a deeper and broader understanding of higher mathematics.  Enrollment in or completion of any course at the level of MATH 2554 or higher is required to enter into the Mathematics program.

Requirements for a Major in Mathematics, B.A. Degree: 

Students must complete 124 degree credit hours to include the minimum University/state core requirements, the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences Graduation Requirements (see the Fulbright College Academic Regulations and Degree Completion Program Policy), and the following liberal arts and major course requirements.  Bolded courses from the list below may be applied to portions of the University/state minimum core requirements. 

A minimum of 63 hours:

12  Twelve total hours from the following science courses, at least 4 hours from each of the following two areas:

  • Biological Sciences -- ANTH 1013/1011L, BIOL 1543/1541L, BIOL 1603/1601L, BIOL 1613/1611L, BIOL 2013/2011L;
  • Physical Sciences--ASTR 2003/2001L, CHEM 1103/1101L, CHEM 1123/1121L, GEOL 1113/1111L, GEOL 1133/1131L, PHYS 2054, PHYS 2074

3  Philosophy course to be selected from: PHIL 2003, PHIL 2103, PHIL 3103

3-6  Any world language at the Intermediate I 2003 level. (This is usually accomplished through completion of a sequence of three language courses:  1013 and 2003, depending on placement in sequence.  (Please note:  1003 usually will not count towards the 124 hours required for degree credit; see the Fulbright College Admission Requirements for further details.)

3  One additional University/state core humanities course (not to include PHIL and not to include world language at the Intermediate I 2003 level)

3-4  Computer Science course CSCE 1953 or CSCE 2004;

Math Course Requirements:

MATH 2574 (MATH 2554 and MATH 2564 are prerequisites), MATH 2701, MATH 2803, MATH 3093, MATH 3113, MATH 3513, and MATH 4933 and 12 semester hours of courses in mathematics selected from MATH 2584 or MATH and STAT courses numbered at the 3000-level or higher; and the completion of a senior writing project under the direction of a faculty member; this is typically carried out in MATH 4933.  An honors senior thesis will satisfy this requirement. It is recommended that MATH 2701 and MATH 2803 be taken as early as possible in the program.

Requirements for a Major in Mathematics, B.S. Degree:

Students must complete 124 degree credit hours to include the minimum University/state core requirements, the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences Graduation Requirements (see the Fulbright College Academic Regulations and Degree Completion Program Policy), and the following liberal arts and major course requirements.  Bolded courses from the list below may be applied to portions of the University/state minimum core requirements. 

15-20  Two of the following sequences of science courses and one advanced-level course from BIOL, CHEM, CSCE, GEOL or PHYS:

  • BIOL 1543/1541L and one of BIOL 1603/1601L, BIOL 1613/1611L, BIOL 2013/2011L, or BIOL 2533/2531L
  • CHEM 1103/1101L and CHEM 1123/1121L
    CSCE 2014
  • GEOL 1113/1111L and GEOL 1133/1131L
  • PHYS 2054 and PHYS 2074

3  Philosophy course to be selected from:  PHIL 2003, PHIL 2103, or PHIL 3103

3  One additional non-PHIL University/state core humanities course

3  Any world language at the Elementary II 1013 level. Please note: if 1003 is taken as a prerequisite for 1013, 1003 usually will not count towards the 124 hours required for college degree credit; see the Fulbright College Admission Requirements for further details.

As a part of the requirements for a B.S. degree with a major in mathematics, the student must also complete the following 28 hours: MATH 2574 (MATH 2554 and MATH 2564 are prerequisites), MATH 2584, MATH 2701, MATH 2803, MATH 3093, MATH 3113, MATH 4513, MATH 4933, CSCE 2004, and the completion of a senior writing project under the direction of a faculty member; this is typically carried out in MATH 4933. An honors senior thesis will satisfy this requirement. It is recommended that MATH 2701 and MATH 2803 be taken as early as possible in the program. In addition, for the B.S. degree in mathematics, the student is required to complete one of the following three options:

  1. A program for the student who wishes to prepare for either applied work in mathematics or graduate work in some field other than mathematics or statistics (Option 1, Applied),
  2. A program for the student who is seeking a broad background in mathematics or who wishes to study mathematics at the graduate level (Option 2, Pure),
  3. A program for the student who wishes to emphasize statistics or who intends to study statistics at the graduate level (Option 3, Statistics).

Option 1 (Applied): 18-19 hours to include STAT 3013 or STAT 5103; MATH 3423, CSCE 3313, MATH 4353, MATH 4363, and one of MATH 4443, MATH 4523, or STAT 4003/4001L.

Option 2 (Pure): 18 hours to include MATH 4113, MATH 4443, MATH 4523, and nine hours of electives from CSCE 3313 or mathematics and statistics courses numbered above 3000.

Option 3 (Statistics): 19 hours of MATH or STAT courses at the 3000-level or higher to include MATH 4353, STAT 3013 or STAT 5103, STAT 4003, STAT 4001L, STAT 4033, and STAT 4043. Strongly recommended electives in this program are STAT 5103 and STAT 5113.

All of the mathematics and statistics electives used in fulfilling the requirements for the bachelor of science program in mathematics must be approved by the student’s adviser.

A 2.00 cumulative grade-point average on all work completed in the department of mathematical sciences will be required for graduation with a B.A. or B.S. degree.

 

Mathematics B.A.

Requirements for Departmental Honors in Mathematics: The Departmental Honors Program in Mathematics is designed for the superior student and is intended to help the student develop a more comprehensive view of the nature of mathematics. The program provides a vehicle for the recognition of the achievements of work beyond the usual course of study and earns the student the distinction “Mathematics Scholar Cum Laude” at graduation. Higher degree distinctions are recommended only in truly exceptional cases and are based upon the whole of the candidate’s program of honors studies.

Graduation with honors: The candidate must satisfy the requirements set forth by the Honors Council. The candidate must also obtain at least a 3.50 grade-point average in mathematics courses numbered MATH 2554, MATH 2564, MATH 2574, MATH 2584, MATH 3093, MATH 3113, and MATH 4513, as well as in the additional mathematics courses necessary to complete the requirements for the chosen option. In addition, a grade of “D” or “F” in any other course offered by the department disqualifies a student for honors.

Candidates must take one year of honors mathematics in their senior year. This course will require an acceptable paper and will carry two hours of credit per semester. The quality of this paper, along with the execution of the rest of the student’s honors program including the overall academic performance, will be used in determining the distinction between Honors and High Honors.

Requirements for a Minor in Mathematics: MATH 2564, either MATH 2603 or MATH 2803; and 3 courses selected from MATH 2574, MATH 2584, or any MATH or STAT courses at the 3000-level or higher.  

Requirements for a Minor in Statistics: MATH 2554 and 12 hours of non-cross-listed courses in the statistics section of this catalog, including 9 hours in courses numbered 3000 and above. A student must notify the department of his or her intent to minor.

Mathematics (B.A. or B.S.) Teacher Licensure Requirements: Please refer to the Secondary Education Requirements for Fulbright College Students under Other Programs. Students wanting to teach mathematics in middle school should consult with a middle level adviser in the College of Education and Health Professions.

Advising Note: Students in Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences who, in the opinion of the department of mathematical sciences, need additional work in the fundamentals are required to take MATH 0003. Using the student’s record and their ACT or Mathematics Placement Test scores, a student’s adviser will suggest enrollment in appropriate courses (a mathematics ACT score below 19 indicates placement in MATH 0003.
