BA in Mathematics (41 credits)


Admission Requirements

  • GPA: 2.0
  • Completion of MATH 221 and MATH 222 and at least three program credits at SCSU.
  • 2.4 GPA in all program courses.
  • A student who fails or withdraws from three or more mathematics courses may be denied admission to the major.

Notes

  • Students are required to complete one of the following: 1) a minor from the College of Science and Engineering or a minor from Economics or Information Systems; 2) the Philosophy Minor for Mathematics majors; 3) a second major; or 4) 12 additional credits in Mathematics or science that are approved by the Mathematics and Statistics Department.
  • Students must earn at least a "C-" in all program courses.

Program Requirements

Basic (22 cr.): MATH 221, MATH 222, MATH 271, MATH 304, MATH 312, MATH 321. Differential Equations (3-4 cr.): MATH 325. MATH 327 may be substituted for MATH 325. Programming (3-7 cr.): MATH 252. CNA 267 or CSCI 201 may be substituted for MATH 252.

Electives

Core (4 cr.) (choose at least one course): MATH 411, MATH 421. A second Core Math Elective may be counted as a Supporting Math Elective. Supporting Math Electives (minimum 10 cr.) (choose three or four courses): MATH 252, MATH 353, MATH 423, MATH 427, MATH 452, MATH 455, MATH 465, MATH 480, STAT 447, STAT 448. MATH 252 satisfies the Programming requirement and also counts as a Supporting Math Electives.

Students fulfill the University's Upper Division Writing Requirement by successfully completing MATH 485 with a grade of "C-" or better. Mathematics and Statistics double majors may choose between MATH 485 and STAT 480.


Minor in Mathematics Minor (BA) (25-27 credits)


Admission Requirements

  • GPA: 2.0
  • Completion of at least three program credits at SCSU.
  • A student who fails or withdraws from three or more mathematics courses may be denied admission to the minor.

Notes

  • Students must earn at least a "C-" in all program courses.

Program Requirements

MATH 221, MATH 222, MATH 312.

Electives

(Minimum 13 cr.) (choose four or five courses): MATH 252, MATH 271, MATH 304, MATH 321, MATH 325, MATH 353, MATH 411, MATH 421, MATH 423, MATH 427, MATH 452, MATH 455, MATH 465, MATH 480. MATH 320 may substitute for MATH 321, but it counts as only 3 credits towards the elective total. MATH 327 may substitute for MATH 325, but it counts as only 3 credits towards the elective total. At least six credits must be completed at SCSU, and at least one program course must be taken at the 400 level.

Notes

  • Students are urged to apply for admission as soon as they become eligible.
  • A student who fails or withdraws from five or more mathematics classes may be dropped from the program.
  • Students must earn at least a “C-“ in all program courses.

Program Requirements

MATH 201, MATH 301, MATH 221, MATH 222, MATH 271, MATH 431.

Electives
