To graduate with a major in Mathematics, a student must have at least
a 2.00 grade point average for all Mathematics courses enrolled
(excluding MTH-110, 241, 301, and 302).
A major normally consists of 11 courses in Mathematics beyond MTH-150 and must include:
- MTH-250 and 260,
- MTH-350 or 450,
- MTH-360 or 460,
- At least seven more from the following:
MTH-151, 160, 235, 255, 320, 325, 330, 335, 340, 341, 350, 360, 420, 450, 451, 460, 461, or 504.
For students planning to do graduate work in Mathematics, the
department strongly recommends that in addition to the four required
courses the major should include: MTH-255, 450, 451, 460, and 461.
Students planning to teach Mathematics in secondary schools must
complete a major in Mathematics in order to be certified. In addition to
the four required courses, the major must include MTH-255, 325, 340, 341, 450, and 460. These students must
also successfully complete EDU-111, 120, 221, 350, 455 , 460, 472, and EDEP- 670 in addition to the
prescribed courses in the major. The requirements for certification
(teaching internship) will be completed on a post-baccalaureate,
graduate credit basis, with the student becoming eligible for
certification at the end of fall term following graduation. Refer to the
Education section of the course catalog for specific requirements for
admission to the Teacher Education Program and other pertinent
For students planning mathematics-related careers in government
service, business, or industry, the department strongly recommends that
in addition to the four required courses the major should include
MTH-255, 335, 340, 341, 350, and at least two
courses from MTH-450, 451, or 460. The department also
recommends at least one course from CSC-231, 461, or 465.
