At present students are required to earn a minimum of 120 semester credits, at least 40 of which must be in courses numbered 300 or above. They must maintain at least a 2.00 grade point average overall, as well as in each major and minor. They must also fulfill General Education requirements and the Core requirements of their college.
General Education requires a minimum of 48 credits to be earned among a variety of offerings according to certain distribution requirements. Two courses that emphasize writing must be taken, at least one of which is in the major. The Mathematics Department has a writing-across-the-major program that incorporates writing throughout the major. In particular, specific types of writing are included in the calculus sequence (MTH 207, 208, 309, 310). Any student completing a Mathematics major will automatically have completed the writing emphasis requirement in general education. All students have some choice in fulfilling the requirements for General Education, but students from the School of Education will find less flexibility due to state standards (General Education Check Sheet for education majors are available in Morris Hall).
Core requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Science and Health involve, in addition to earning your mathematics major, completion of two lab science courses and completion of a minor or a second major or 18 credits at the 300 or 400 level in courses outside the mathematics department. This degree earned in the School of Education involves different core requirements, and requires a number of courses in Professional Education and Psychology culminating in a 15-credit student teaching or teaching internship experience. Bachelor of Arts degree requirements are also slightly different.
