Department of Mathematics

# Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics

The requirement for entrance to the major program is completion of two years of algebra as well as courses in geometry and trigonometry, or a sequence of courses containing their equivalents, such as MATH 4R and 5. It is strongly recommended that such study be completed before entrance to the university.

## Major requirements (48-54 units)

### Core curriculum (30 units)

MATH 75 (or 75A and B), 76, 77, 81 (15 units)

MATH 111 (3 units)

MATH 151, 152 (8 units)

MATH 171 (4 units)

### Elective curriculum (18-24 units)

Six mathematics courses, upper-division or graduate (see note 1), minimum of 3 units per course, excluding MATH 100, 102, 133, 134, 137, 138, and 139.

## Additional requirements (7 units)

CSCI 40 (4 units)

PHYS 4A (see note 2) (3 units)

## General Education (51 units) (see note 3)

## Electives and remaining degree requirements (8-14 units)

## Total (120 units)

## Advising Notes

- Special conditions apply for graduate courses; see a department adviser.
- PHYS 4AL is not required for the math major. If students wish to use PHYS 4A as a General Education Breadth course, they must also take PHYS 4AL.
- MATH 75 (and 75A) satisfies the Quantitative Reasoning requirement within General Education Foundation courses. It also satisfies the requirement within General Education Core courses, for students under 1998-1999 or earlier catalogs.
- See Mathematics Road Map.

## Advising

It is strongly recommended, to all math majors, to have an advising session at least once a semester. See the department chair for assignment to an adviser.

## Grade Requirements

All courses required as prerequisites for a mathematics course must be completed with a grade of C or better before registration will be permitted. All courses taken to fulfill major or minor requirements must be completed with a grade of C or better.
