The B.S. in Mathematical Sciences requires a minimum of 120 credits with at least 41 of those credits in courses labeled MATH, STAT, OPER or CMSC. Along with the general education requirements of the College of Humanities and Sciences and the undergraduate degree requirements, students are required to take core courses and fulfill specific requirements for the degree.

Based on the results of the Mathematics Placement Test, students may be required to take MATH 151 Precalculus Mathematics. No more than one course in mathematics (MATH) at the 100 level can count for the general requirements toward the bachelorâ€™s degree. Credit for 100-level mathematical sciences courses cannot be applied toward the mathematical sciences courses required for the major in mathematical sciences.

Mathematical science majors are required to complete the following:

Complete one of the following sequences:
1. BIOL 151 and 152 and BIOZ 151L and 152L Introduction to Biological Science and Laboratory I and II
2. CHEM 101-102 and CHEZ/FRSZ 101L and 102L General Chemistry and Laboratory I and II
3. PHYS 207 and 208 University Physics I and II or PHYS 201-202 General Physics

Complete another course in the natural sciences that is not from the general education science and technology list. This course must be in a science different from the sequence chosen in A above.

Mathematics Core All Mathematical concentrations are required to take the following courses.
Note: A grade of C or better is required in courses/credits marked with an asterisk (*).

MATH 200-201 Calculus with Analytic Geometry*
MATH 255 Introduction to Computational Mathematics or CMSC 245 Introduction to Using Programming C++
MATH 300 Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning*
MATH 307 Multivariate Calculus*
MATH 310 Linear Algebra*
MATH 490 Mathematical Expositions
MATH 507 Analysis I
STAT 212 Concepts of Statistics

Additional Courses to complete a Concentration in Mathematics: By completing the listed requirements, students may obtain a designation on their transcript that their study has emphasized the Mathematics concentrations. Students may choose to meet the requirements of more than one concentration.
Note: A grade of C or better is required in courses/credits marked with an asterisk (*).

MATH 301 Differential Equations* MATH 501 Abstract Algebra MATH 508 Analysis I-II
MATH 509 General Topology I MATH 525 Introduction to Combinatorial Mathematics

Six additional upper-level credits in mathematics, statistics, operations research or computer science courses or complete a minor or a double major.
