Some courses listed on this checksheet may have prerequisites and/or corequisites; please consult the University Course Catalog or check with your advisor.
The six hours of math electives must be chosen from the Mathematics courses numbered between MATH 4044 History of Mathematics and MATH 4454 Applied Mathematical Modeling, with the following exceptions:
Course selected for here must be unused from Multi-D section above, this includes MATH 2204, 2214, 3214, 3034, 3144, & 3214. However, if 2204, 2214, or 3214 was not used to satisfy Multi-D, one of them must be taken for this requirement.
In other words, if 3214 not used for degree core, 3214; if 2214 not used for degree core, 2214; if 2204 not used for degree core, 2204
Each student is required to participate in the department’s Outcomes Assessment procedures as determined by each year’s Undergraduate Program Committee and approved by the Chair.
120 Credits
Students who did not successfully complete at least two years of a single foreign, classical, or sign language during high school must successfully complete six credit hours of a single foreign, classical, or sign language at the college level. Courses taken to meet this requirement do not count toward the hours required for graduation. Please consult the Undergraduate Catalog for details.
Upon having attempted 36 semester credits, the student must have completed 12 credits of the Pathways General Education Requirements. Upon having attempted 72 credits (including transfer, advanced placement, advanced standing, credit by examination, and course withdrawal), the student must have completed 24 credits of the Pathways General Education Requirements. In addition, satisfactory progress toward the B.S. in mathematics requires that:
Students are required to have a 2.0 GPA and a 2.0 in-major GPA for Graduation. In-major GPA for this option is computed using all MATH courses with the exception of the following:
