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