Curriculum
Dr. John E. Hammett III, Chairperson
The Department of Mathematics offers three majors and one minor in Mathematics. Students must maintain an average GPA of at least 2.0 in all mathematics courses counted towards the B.S. degree or an average GPA of at least 2.5 in all other mathematics courses counted towards the B.A. degree in order to graduate with a mathematics major.
Requirements for Mathematics Major
Degree of Bachelor of Science
Eight of the required credits for the major count towards the Core Curriculum Requirements.

^{1 }May count towards the Core Mathematics Requirement.
Special Notes on Core Curriculum Requirements
^{1}  The Core Curriculum Natural Science Requirement for the B.S. in Mathematics degree is ordinarily PC185 General Physics I, and CS180 Introduction to Programming. These Mathematics majors are encouraged to take PC186 as well. A more advanced course in computer programming may substitute for CS180, but a course in computer programming is expected. 
^{2 }  Mathematics majors are encouraged to take EC101 Macroeconomic Principles as part of their Social Sciences Requirement. 
^{3 }  Ordinarily a student may not receive credit for more than one of the calculus sequences, nor may a student receive credit for both MA132 Statistics for the Life Sciences and MA212 Elementary Statistics. 
^{4 }  Satisfactory completion of core mathematics courses with integrated mathematics reviews, such as MA102 Mathematics for the Liberal Arts and MA103 Probability and Statistics for the Liberal Arts, may be required based on placement test results. 
^{5 }  Students intending or expected to take calculus courses may first be required to take MA100 Fundamentals of College Algebra and/or MA101 Precalculus, unless exempted by placement test results. 
^{6 }  Students who receive advanced placement beyond the introductory calculus sequences may use MA273 Multivariable Calculus I and MA274 Multivariable Calculus II to satisfy the Mathematics Core Requirement. 
Special Notes on Major Requirements
^{1}  The Chairperson of the Mathematics Department may reduce the 9 credit requirement in the Mathematics electives to 3 credits for the B.S. degree if the student has, in consultation with a departmental advisor, combined this Mathematics major with a specified program of courses in a related field. Such programs include, but are not limited to, major or minor programs in another department and the certification program in secondary education.
