Mathematics Major, BA Option

At the end of the sophomore year, students, aided by their faculty advisors, should plan a course of study for the completion of the college program.

The advanced courses selected during the third and fourth years should be consistent with the student’s interests and goals.

Students must earn a grade of C- or higher in all mathematics courses taken at the 200 or higher level in all undergraduate mathematics degree programs.
