A Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics can qualify you for a broad range of positions in business, industry, government, and teaching. Computer and computer service firms, chemical and pharmaceutical firms, communication service providers, consulting firms, producers of petroleum and petroleum products, research laboratories, banks, insurance companies, and Wall Street brokerages all hire mathematically trained personnel. A major in Mathematics is also excellent preparation for graduate study in a wide variety of fields including economics, law, computer science, education, management, operations research, data engineering, and of course Mathematics itself. B.A. in Applied Mathematics is recommended for those students who are pursuing another quantitatively rich major which they consider their primary interest. The toolkit of applicable mathematical methods will enable them to advance further in their own field, whether in industry or in academia. In addition to the preliminary and extra-disciplinary requirements described above, the student must earn credit for the following courses, with a grade average of at least 2.0. Three required courses: MAT 414, MAT 532 (or 531), and MAT 581. Two courses chosen out of one of the following groups: - Differential and Linear Equations: MAT 511, 517, 518, 682 - Analysis: MAT 412, 511, 512, 513, 554 - Probability and Statistics: MAT 521, 525, 526 With consent of the mathematics major advisor, these grouping may be altered. 3 credits of elective mathematics courses: MAT 412 or those MAT courses numbered 490 or higher. With prior approval of the student's major advisor, a mathematically rich 500+ level course in another department may be substituted for the mathematics elective.
