Mathematics Degree Requirements

Major Requirements for a BA in Math

In addition to meeting the course requirements for each respective major, all students must also fulfill the General Education requirements for the Undergraduate College. Students may combine Teacher Certification with a degree in Mathematics.

Senior Comprehensive Policy

A comprehensive examination was just introduced in spring 2018 and does not currently affect students’ graduation or GPA status. Beginning in spring 2022, the Mathematics Department plans to require passing the comprehensive examination in order to graduate with a major in either mathematics or mathematics education.

General Education Requirements 57 to 58 credits

Six credits from the Math major can be applied towards General Education requirements.
