The mathematics curriculum provides the majors with a solid foundation in both applied and theoretical mathematics.
It develops in students correct and effective reasoning and problem-solving skills for use in business, industry, teaching, or graduate work in mathematics.

Special RequirementsA student must maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 in all required courses for the major or minor. If the GPA falls below this, the student is placed on probation by the department and has one semester to increase the GPA to the minimum standard.
Failing this, the student will be dismissed from the program unless he or she gets an extension from the department chair.
No grade lower than a 'C-' in a mathematics course will count toward fulfilling the requirements of the major or minor.
