## Mathematics Course Requirements

The mathematics major leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics. The major requires a minimum of 68 semester hours (SH) and a maximum of 77 SH of required and elective courses. These include 54 SH of mathematics, 8 SH of calculus-based physics and 6 SH of high-level programming languages. The courses required of pure mathematics majors are:

## B.S. in Mathematics with an Emphasis in Statistics

The mathematics major with a concentration in statistics leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics. The major requires a minimum of 68 semester hours (SH) and a maximum of 77 of required and elective courses. These include 54 SH of mathematics, 18 hours of statistic courses, 8 semester hours of calculus based physics and 6 semester hours of high-level programming languages. The courses required of pure mathematics majors are:

## Placement and Proficiency Examinations for Mathematics Courses

Students may place out of one or more required mathematics courses (MAT 1311, 1312, 1313, and/or 2303) by taking a series of placement exams and may receive credit toward their general education requirements.

Continuing students may, through the department chair, petition for an examination to be exempted from a nonlaboratory mathematics course. A student must present sufficient documentation to support the petition. Proficiency exams are administered during the final examination period only.

Credit, but no grade, will be granted for courses that the department determines may be by-passed as a result of exemption by examination.
