Undergraduate Programs

Our undergraduate degree programs help develop skills to solve real-world problems and can lead to a successful career in one of many fields.
 

 

Undergraduate Programs

With an emphasis on practical experience, our degree programs can lead to a rewarding career. Students can follow one of three specific tracks that have been developed, pursue a dual degree to complete a master's in less time, or personalize their studies.

1. Actuarial Track: Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Statistics combined with a Minor in Actuarial Science
2. Data Analytics Track: Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Statistics combined Data Analytics courses.
3. Math Teacher Track: Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Statistics combined with a Education courses.
4. Dual Degree (B.S./M.S.) Track: Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Statistics combined with a Master of Science in Mathematics or Statistics.
5. Personalized Track: Choose either Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (BS) degree. You can consult with your undergraduate advisor to choose your own set of elective math and stat courses combined with any minor or without any minor degree plan

Pursuing a B.S. versus B.A. Degree:

A B.A. is suitable for students who are interested in a liberal arts degree. The program has fewer mathematics course requirements and more non-science and foreign language courses required.

A B.S. is suitable for students who are interested in a more math- and science-focused degree, and for those who may pursue graduate or professional studies in math, statistics, or other science fields.

College Algebra Exemption

An exemption from college algebra is given to students who have demonstrated a minimum proficiency in mathematics through ACT/SAT scores, or through transfer credit of a calculus-level course.

No credit is provided to a student who receives a college algebra exemption, but the exemption allows a student to take any upper-level course that has college algebra as a prerequisite.

ACT/SAT math subscores that merit college algebra exemption
Test date ACT math subscore SAT math subscore
After 3/1/2016 28 or higher 660 or higher
8/1/2009 through 3/1/2016 28 or higher 640 or higher
Before 8/1/2009 28 or higher 600 or higher

Credit by Examination

You may be able to earn credit by earning scores on examinations.

Through College Level Examination Program (CLEP), you can test out of two undergraduate mathematics courses.

  • MATH 110 (college algebra)
  • MATH 120 (precalculus)

Our department accepts the results of these tests, but be sure to check with your own department or school first since some (for instance, the School of Pharmacy) do not accept CLEP credits.

Only the following courses are available for credit by a departmental examination.

  • MATH 210 (Calculus I)
  • MATH 220 (Calculus II)
  • MATH 250 (Calculus III)

Credit for certain courses is awarded for sufficiently high scores on AP or higher level IB exams.

Calculus

  • Calculus AB score 3 or above transfers as MATH 210 (Calculus I) (four credit hours)
  • Calculus BC score 3 or above transfers as MATH 210 (Calculus I) and MATH 220 (Calculus II) (each four credit hours)
  • IB examination for mathematics HL score 5 or above transfers as MATH 210 (Calculus I) (four credit hours)

Statistics

  • AP score 4 or above transfers as STAT 235 (elementary statistics) (three credit hours)
