Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics
One of two undergraduate majors offered in Mathematics, the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree, requires a total of 48 credits (at least 15 upper-division must be completed at FAU), a minimum GPA of 2.2.
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:
