Departmental Honors in Mathematics
To enroll as a candidate for departmental honors, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.250.
Honors Program Requirements
For the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with an honors track:
|Complete all courses in Group R 1||15|
|MATH 513||Fundamental Concepts of Algebra||3|
|MATH 640||Advanced Calculus II||3|
|Plus three additional courses selected from those listed in Groups A, B and C.||9|
|Total Credit Hours||30|
A list of courses in each group can be found at the beginning of the mathematics section of the catalog.
All bachelor’s degrees in mathematics require a high-level algorithmic computer language. The MATLAB course, MATH 451, is strongly recommended.
The above work must be completed with a grade point average of 3.500.
Since it is common for students completing the above program to continue on to pursue a graduate degree in mathematics, it is recommended that the student complete a course in at least one of the following languages: French, German or Russian.
