General Mathematics is a Liberal Arts program designed to provide a solid foundation in mathematics with the flexibility to explore and develop expertise in other academic fields. Because of its flexibility, this concentration is well suited for students who want to combine mathematics with such fields as business, law, computer science, or statistics.

Effective Spring 2018

A minimum grade of C is required in all mathematics, statistics, and computer science courses that are required for graduation.

1

At least 12 credits of ALL upper division MATH courses must be at the 400-level or above.

2

These courses are in addition to the 18 credits of Mathematical Sciences Electives required in footnote 1, and may not be used to fulfill the Mathematical Sciences Electives requirement.

3

Select a non-physics course from category 3A in the AUCC.

4

Select 18 credits from upper division (300-400 level) MATH, CS, or STAT courses, except those courses ending in -80 to -99.  At least 9 of the 18 credits must be from upper division MATH courses.

5

Select enough elective credits to bring the program total to a minimum of 120 credits, of which at least 42 must be upper-division (300- to 400-level).

Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program:

TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER:  The curriculum for the Major in Mathematics, General Mathematics Concentration assumes students enter college prepared to take calculus. Entering students who are not prepared to take calculus will need to fulfill pre‐calculus requirements in the first semester: MATH 117, MATH 118, MATH 124, MATH 125, MATH 126. A minimum grade of C is required in all mathematics, statistics, and computer science courses that are required by the major.
