The mathematics program emphasizes concepts, procedures, and connections. All courses develop reasoning abilities along with skills in precise communication of concepts. Problem solving is addressed throughout the program. Students are provided with solid mathematical foundation that well prepare them for advanced graduate study or careers in education, businesses, industrial or other professional fields and practical skills and methods to deal with realistic problems in those fields.

Mathematics (MATH) courses at the 2000 level or higher, including 12 credit hours at the 3000 level or higher. Math 2340 does not count toward the mathematics electives requirement.
The following connection courses are also required for the BS in mathematics:
One computer language course (Math 2340 is strongly recommended. It meets the computer language requirement but does not count toward mathematics elective credits.)
Calculus-based Physics 2305 or 2306 with a lab.
A minor in an approved discipline or an approved interdisciplinary minor.
42 semester hours in Statistics and supporting areas including
MATH 2312 Calculus I
MATH 2313 Calculus II
MATH 2322 Linear Algebra
MATH 3314 Calculus III
MATH 3320 Foundations of Higher Mathematics
MATH 3331 Foundations of Probability and Statistics
MATH 3332 Foundations of Statistical Inference
MATH 4325 Design of Experiments
MATH 4333 Regression Analysis
Mathematics and Statistics Electives (9 hours):
MATH 3337 Stochastic Processes
MATH 4196 Mathematics Reading and Research II
MATH 4295 Mathematics Reading and Research I
MATH 4330 Survival Analysis
MATH 4340 Multivariate Analysis
MATH 4345 Bayesian Data Analysis
MATH 4355 Categorical Data Analysis
MATH 4360 Time Series Analysis

MATH/ENGR 2340 is recommended to meet this requirement. Other courses in VB, C/C++, Java or other high level languages offered by the CIS department can also be used to meet this requirement.
Students who are pursuing majors in subject areas other than mathematics may elect to get a minor in mathematics.
The requirement for a minor in mathematics include:
18 semester hours of mathematics courses, to include MATH 2312, 2313, and at least 9 hours of upper division courses.
Students who are pursuing majors in other subject areas may elect to get a minor in statistics. Students who are pursuing a degree (BA or BS) in mathematics may also use this minor to fulfill the "minor requirement".
Required Courses (15 hours):
MATH 2312 - Calculus I
MATH 2313 - Calculus II
MATH 3331 - Foundations of Probability and Statistics
MATH 3332 - Foundations of Statistical Inference
MATH 3333 - Application of Statistical Methods I
Elective Course (3 hours):
MATH 4333 - Regression Analysis
MATH 4335 - Computational Statistics and its Applications
MATH 2312 and MATH 2313 may be double-counted toward a BS or BA degree in Mathematics and a minor in Statistics. The other courses listed above may not be double-counted toward a BS or BA in Mathematics when used toward a minor in Statistics.
The upper division courses listed here are not to be double counted toward either BS or BA in mathematics.
Students who are pursuing majors in other subject areas may elect to get a minor in actuarial science. Students who are pursuing a degree (BA or BS) in mathematics may also use this minor to fulfill the "minor requirement".
Required Courses (18 hours):
BFIN 3321 - Principles of Financial Management
BFIN 3325 - Money and Capital Markets
BFIN 3326 - Risk Management and Insurance
MATH 3331 - Foundations of Probability and Statistics
