Mathematical Science, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Programs (A-Z)

The plan in Mathematical Science leads to the bachelor of arts (B.A.) or bachelor of science (B.S.) degree. The undergraduate degree is designed to prepare the student for a career in industry or education, or to prepare the student for graduate study in mathematics, statistics, operations research or other mathematically based disciplines. The plan includes courses in both the classical foundations of mathematics and the modern concern with numerical issues spawned by the computer. Students who are seeking teaching certification will follow the degree plan and certification on notated pages. Please consult the College of Education (COE) for 4-8 degree and certification as well as for 8-12degree and certification.


This degree requires 120 hours and includes 42 hours of University Core. University Core is listed separately in the catalog.
