Recent Publications

Dr. Tim Ford, has written a new 
textbook entitles, Separable Algebra.
Due to be published on October 20, 2017,
this book presents a comprehensive
introduction to the theory of separable
algebras over commutative rings.
Azumaya algebras, the henselization of
local rings, and Galois theory are
rigorously introduced and treated.
Essential connections are drawn
between the theory of separable
algebras and Morita theory, the theory
of faithfully flat descent, cohomology,
derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices,
maximal orders, and class groups.

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

The Bachelor of Science degree program prepares students for career opportunities in the mathematical sciences, including those that require further study at the graduate level.

The B.S. degree requires a minimum GPA of 2.5.

Any math course taken at another institution must be completed with a grade of at least a "C-" to be considered part of this program.

All Mathematical Sciences majors are required to meet with their advisor at least once a year.

Students seeking this degree must complete the following courses:

Course Credits
MAC 2311 Calculus 1 4
MAC 2312 Calculus 2 4
MAC 2313 Calculus 3 4
MAD 2104 Discrete Mathematics 3
MAD 2502 Introduction to Computational Math 3
MAP 2302 Differential Equations 1 3
MAS 2103 Matrix Theory or Linear Algebra 3
MAT 4937 Mathematical Problem Solving 3
MAA 4200 Modern Analysis 3
MAA 4402 Introductory Complex Analysis 3
MAS 4107 Linear Algebra 2 3
MAS 4301 Modern Algebra 3
STA 4442 Probability & Statistics 1 3
Upper-division math electives
(3000 level or higher)*
Mathematics Total: 57
Additional Science course:

* The following courses may not be used as upper-division math electives: STA 3163, STA 3173, STA 3949, MAT 3949, MAP 4945, or STA 4821.

* Because of overlap in course content, Mathematics majors may receive credit for at most one course in each of the following pairs:
MAP 2302 or MAP 3305
MAP 4303 or MAP 4306
STA 4443 or STA 4032

* As with all degree programs, the authoritative source for the degree requirements is the University Catalog that was in effect for the academic year in which the student entered the University. The information on this page does not supersede the Catalog.
