Bachelor of Arts with a major in Mathematics (MTA) -- Description in the Undergraduate Catalog
The B.A. program in mathematics provides for a breadth of mathematical study within the context of a liberal arts degree. It may be chosen as a preparation for a professional career in business, education, law or social science. It affords the student a significant distribution of courses in the humanities and social sciences so that he or she can develop a concentration in a field other than mathematics. The student's career goals will generally suggest desirable upper level mathematics electives.

Students must take a total of 33 credit hours in mathematics.

Required courses:

  • MTH 168 Analytic Geometry and Calculus I
  • MTH 169 Analytic Geometry and Calculus II (Prerequisite: MTH 168)
  • MTH 218 Analytic Geometry and Calculus III (Prerequisite: MTH 169)
  • MTH 308 Foundations and Discrete Mathematics (Prerequisite: MTH 169; should be taken as soon as possible after successful completion of MTH 169)
  • MTH 310 Linear Algebra and Matrices (Prerequisite: MTH 218 and MTH 308; should be taken as soon as possible after successful completion of MTH 308 and MTH 218)
  • MTH 330 Intermediate Analysis (Prerequisite: MTH 310)
  • MTH 361 Introduction to Abstract Algebra (Prerequisite: MTH 218, MTH 308)
  • MTH 411 Probability and Statistics I (Prerequisite: MTH 218 and MTH 308)

In addition, take 9 credit hours of MTH electives (300-400 level; consult your advisor - not every class is appropriate for the MTA degree).
