The Math Department has an exam for placement in courses. It is sometimes called the assessment exam but more often the placement exam. Based on your math placement exam score, the Mathematics Department will enter a BMAT score into Banner. Your BMAT score is good for one year. This will allow you to register for certain mathematics courses.
Students must complete 15 credits of non-introductory and upper division level course work in mathematics. More specifically:
Bachelors Degrees in Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics offers both a BA and a BS degree in Mathematics. The requirements for these are listed below. Additional information for both degrees can be found under the BS requirements.
We have also prepared some sample pathways that could help you plan your degree:
BACHELORS OF ARTS
Students must complete MATH 244, or MATH 253A, as well as 23 credit hours: MATH 480 and 21 credit hours in mathematics courses numbered between 300 and 479, which must include:
BACHELORS OF SCIENCES
Students must complete PHYS 170/170L and 272/272L, as well as MATH 244, or MATH 253A. In addition, students must complete 41 credit hours: MATH 480 and 39 credit hours in mathematics courses numbered between 300 and 479, which must include:
At most 15 of the 39 credit hours in mathematics courses numbered from 300 to 479 may be replaced by appropriate non-introductory courses in the natural sciences (see below).
In addition, students must demonstrate an understanding of algorithms and logic, as well as precision of thinking. Courses to satisfy this requirement are MATH 190, 301, 304, 305, 407; EE 160; ICS 110c, 110d, 110p, 111, 211; GG250; PHYS 305; ME 360; CEE 417.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND INFORMATION FOR BA AND BS MATHEMATICS MAJORS:
Appropriate non-introductory courses in the natural or information sciences
The following science courses may be included in the BS requirement of 15 hours in additional upper division mathematics courses or appropriate non-introductory courses in the natural or information sciences:
All BS mathematics majors are required to receive approval from a mathematics advisor for their 15 credit related courses credit hours.
Courses with content overlap
There are a number of courses in computer science, engineering, mathematics, and physics, with content overlap. Only one course of each pair shown below may be counted toward mathematics degree requirements. If a mathematics course is included in the 24 required upper division mathematics credits, then the non-mathematics course paired with it may not be used to satisfy the related 15 credits. Neither may both courses in a pair be used to satisfy the related 15 credits.
