Bachelor of Science with a major in Mathematics (MTH) -- Description in the Undergraduate Catalog
The B.S. program in mathematics provides a foundation for students who wish to pursue graduate studies in any area of the mathematical sciences, to enter the actuarial profession, or to enter careers where mathematics is used in an engineering or science setting.

Students must take a total of 42 credit hours in mathematics. MTH majors are also required to have minor (or second major).

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 219 Applied Differential Equations (Prerequisite: MTH 218)
  • 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 430 Real Analysis (Prerequisite: MTH 330)

In addition, take 12 credit hours of MTH electives (300-400 level; consult your advisor - not every class is appropriate for the MTH degree).
