Mathematical Science, B.S. Degree Map  

This plan leads to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. This undergraduate degree is designed to prepare a student for a career in industry or education, as well as graduate study in mathematics, statistics, operations research or other mathematically based disciplines. This plan balances courses in classical foundations of mathematics, and modern numerical methods using computer algorithms and software. Students who seek teaching certification should consider following alternative mathematics degree plans that include teaching certification (4-8 and 7-12). Please consult the College of Education (COE) for more information.

Requirements

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