The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to:
- Provide cultural training in mathematics;
- Prepare teachers of secondary school mathematics;
- Provide the basic training in mathematics needed by preprofessional students and students of science; and
- Lay a broad foundation for students majoring in mathematics.
Mathematics majors may elect the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. Senior majors must take the Major Field Achievement Test in mathematics, preferably during the last semester.
As a rule, students should have an ACT math score of at least 28 (SAT math score of at least 600) to enroll in MATH 2350 . Corresponding minimum math scores to enroll in MATH 2300 and MATH 1330 are as follows: MATH 2300 , an ACT score of at least 25 (SAT at least 560); MATH 1330 , an ACT score of at least 22 (SAT at least 510). Leveling work decreases the number of electives or increases the total hours in the degree.
