##### Honors Program in Mathematics

The department offers an honors program to permit exceptional students to pursue advanced study and receive recognition for its completion. The honors program is distinct from graduation with honors and does not replace it.

Participants in the honors program must be mathematics majors with at least junior standing (60-90 credit hours). The students will be selected by a faculty committee, normally during the junior year and usually before the second semester. Minimum admission requirements are a 3.25 grade point average overall and a 3.25 grade point average in all mathematics and statistics courses. These averages must be maintained for continued participation in the program. There will be at most five students in the program at one time. For details about the program please contact the department office.

#### Developmental Mathematics

For information on alternative methods of receiving credit for a developmental mathematics course, students should contact the department chair.

#### Major in Mathematics

##### Bachelor of Science

The bachelor of science degree is designed for students who plan to enter graduate school or who wish immediate employment as mathematicians. It requires MATH 1223, 2453, 2350, 3310, 3312, 3322, 4390, 4303, 4304, STAT 3352, six additional hours of upper-level mathematics or statistics electives to include either MATH 4310, 4306, or 4302. Six hours of German or French are strongly recommended for students who intend to obtain the PhD degree in mathematics.

##### Bachelor of Arts

The bachelor of arts degree requires MATH 1223, 2453, 2350, 3310, 3312, 3322, 4303, 4390, STAT 3352, and 9 hours of upper-level mathematics or statistics electives. Also, students seeking the bachelor of arts degree are required to complete a 2000-level second language course or demonstrate equivalent proficiency as measured by a competency test.

#### Secondary Teacher Licensure

Students wishing to teach mathematics at the secondary level must complete either a bachelor of science or a bachelor of arts in mathematics.

The bachelor of science degree within the secondary teacher licensure option consists of MATH 1223, 2453, 2350, 3310, 3312, 3322, 3330, 4381, 4383, 4303, 4304, 4390, and either 4310, 4306 or 4302; STAT 3352; and the minor in secondary education. See the Secondary Teacher Licensure” section for details.

The bachelor of arts in mathematics within the secondary teacher licensure option consists of MATH 1223, 2453, ,2350, 3310, 3312, 3322, 3330, 4381, 4383, 4390; STAT 3352; nine hours of upper-level MATH or STAT electives; and a minor in secondary education. See the Secondary Teacher Licensure” section for details.

#### Minor in Mathematics

#### Minor in Statistics

The minor in statistics is designed for students who wish to apply their mathematical training in any of the many fields that employ statistics. It requires at least 12 hours of statistics courses, including STAT 3350, 3352, 3353, and either STAT 3351 or 4352. MATH 1223, 1451, and 1452 are also required. Statistics courses, except 3352, used for a minor may not be used to satisfy requirements for a major in mathematics.
