B.S. in Mathematics (Pure Mathematics)

The Bachelors Degree Program in Mathematics (Pure Mathematics) is designed for students who value the study of mathematics, not only for application, but also for its own sake, and are interested in finding new formulae and methods while utilizing insights from a tradition of thousands of years.

The pure mathematics concentration is recommended for those interested in graduate study in pure mathematics, and those who seek a rigorous education that involves not only rote computational skills but also rigorous explanations of how mathematics works.

A Mathematics major must complete a minimum of 120 semester hours of University courses. These include 60 hours in mathematics, 2 hours in computer programming and 16 hours in sciences. Also, a major must earn a “C” or better grade except for one passing grade below “C” if the student has GPA of at least 2.0 but less than 2.3, or two passing grades below “C” if the student has GPA of at least 2.3 in all required mathematics courses.
