**Mathematics Major**

The department offers the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree and the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in mathematics. The mathematics requirements for the two degrees are identical; the difference between them is the number of science credits that are required (see B.A., B.S.)

Each course offered by the Mathematics Department is also designed to provide one or more of the following:

- part of the mathematical component of a liberal education
- the mathematical tools needed by students in business, computer science, education, engineering, and the biological, physical, and social sciences
- training beyond the introductory level in the major areas of pure and applied mathematics

** Mathematics Minor**

A minor in mathematics consists of 24 credits in mathematics, including:

- MTH 181 Calculus I
- MTH 182 Calculus II
- 8 credits chosen from among:
- MTH 220 Discrete Mathematics
- MTH 281 Multivariable Calculus
- MTH 283 Multivariable Calculus for Engineers
- MTH 284 Matrices for Engineers
- MTH 286 Introduction to Differential Equations
- MTH 288 Linear Algebra

Note: MTH 281 and MTH 283 may not both be used.

MTH 284 and MTH 288 may not both be used.

The remaining 8 credits must be in mathematics courses numbered 300 or above, excluding MTH 326, MTH 327, MTH 328, MTH 329 and MTH 330.

**Statistics Minor**

Students interested in a career or graduate school that requires a research component involving data analysis should consider earning a Statistics minor. The study of mathematics, psychology, sociology, biology, environmental science, health science, social science, among others, can be greatly enhanced by a minor in statistics. Note that only MTH 323 can be counted for both the Mathematics major and the minor in statistics.

The Statistics minor consists of 19 credits of coursework including,

- MTH 347 Applied Statistics
- MTH 421 Time Series Analysis
- MTH 431 Categorical Data Analysis
- MTH 435 Statistical Consulting and Programming
- or a statistics course approved by the Department of Mathematics

and one of:

MTH 147 Statistical Concepts with Applications

MTH 323 Statistical Methods

ECN 322 Statistics and Econometrics

COM 303 Communication Inquiry

PSY 311 Behavioral Science Statistics

SOC 354 Quantitative Sociological Research

SWK 305 Perspectives on Social Work Research II

UST 404 Urban Data Analysis

OMS 201 Business Statistics

PSC 251 Introduction to Data Analysis

or other introductory statistics course approved by the Department of Mathematics

Four courses consisting of:

**Secondary Teacher Licensure**

Students have the option of a single field licensure in mathematics. This licensure program requires coursework from the College of Science and the College of Education and Human Services. Contact the Mathematics adviser for required science courses. Contact the Education Student Service Center for the education courses required for licensure or for information on the requirements for Post-Baccalaureate Secondary Teacher Licensure (216-687-4625 or Rhodes Tower 1401).
