Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) curriculum provides students with a solid foundation in mathematics, while allowing them to combine the study of mathematics with an in-depth study of another field. For example, students can acquire excellent credentials for medical school by combining their B.A. in Mathematics with at least two years of chemistry and at least one year each of biology and physics. Additionally, the B.A. in Mathematics provides strong credentials for law school as well as for graduate school in mathematics.

Mathematics majors complete a minimum of 120 credits to earn a bachelor’s degree: 49-51 credits of core courses, 16-25 elective credits, and 53 credits of major courses.

Major Requirements


Students seeking the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics are required to take the following courses:
