The courses in mathematics are designed to satisfy the general cultural needs of students and to provide a broad background for those who plan a career in mathematics, computer science, actuarial sciences, engineering sciences, or the natural sciences.
The mathematics minor will consist of 5 or more mathematics courses (20 credit hours), at least two of which must be at the 300level.
An exception to the tencourse requirement is the following. The department considers a student who places into Calculus II or Calculus III and completes that course with a ‘C’ or better to have met the major requirements for the preceding calculus courses. That is, a student who places into MA 223 and completes it with a ‘C’ or better is not required to take MA 213 for the major; a student who places into MA 233 and completes it with a ‘C’ or better is not required to take MA 213 or MA 223 for the major.
Prerequisites for mathematics courses must be completed with a grade of ‘C’ or above. No student who has completed a mathematics course with a grade of ‘C’ or above may enroll in a prerequisite to that course without the permission of the department chair. MA 223 is a prerequisite for all 300level mathematics. Transfer credit for 300level courses counting toward the major or minor requires permission of the department chair.
