Completion of the Core Curriculum.
Please note the following recommendations:
- The department strongly recommends taking Physics
- Math majors whose native language is English must
complete a foreign language requirement, either by completing the second
semester of a foreign language course or by achieving a passing score
on a language placement test.
- Note that 128 credits are required for graduation.
Learning Goals/Outcomes for the B.S. in
Students will be able to:
- think logically and analyze information critically in
a mathematical setting.
- reformulate and solve problems in an abstract
- express mathematical results verbally, working
individually and in collaborative groups.
- use appropriate technology to facilitate an
understanding of mathematical concepts, but without substituting
technology for mathematical thought.
A Mathematics Honors Major must satisfy all the requirements
for a Mathematics Major. She or he must also satisfy the following
- Two (2) additional upper division courses, including
at least one 400-level course, and
