# Department of Mathematics and Statistics

## Department Objectives

- To prepare students to pursue graduate programs in mathematics or statistics;
- To prepare students for careers in mathematics education;
- To provide entry-level training for those wishing to pursue careers in actuarial science or business;
- To provide the courses to meet the requirements of General Studies;
- To provide the courses to meet the service functions for departments requiring knowledge of mathematics.

## Department Policies

- Placement in the proper course is of utmost importance to the student and the Department. The ACT math score is used to place traditional entering freshmen in our entry level college mathematics courses. Consult the departmental course listings for information on minimal ACT math score requirements for our entry level courses.
- Students who have completed a full year of Calculus in high school may start in Calculus II or Calculus III.
**CLEP Examination must be taken before completing higher level courses.**- All majors and endorsements must be completed with no grade below a "C".
- Math 090 credit will not count toward any university degrees.
- Students will not be allowed to register and earn credit for any 100 level mathematics course after having successfully completed (C or better) another mathematics or statistics course for which the said 100 level course is a prerequisite.

## Mathematics Major

Three options are available in this major:

- Mathematics - Bachelor of Arts Degree

**or**Mathematics - Bachelor of Science Degree - Mathematics Comprehensive - Bachelor of Science Degree
- Mathematics 7-12 Teaching Field Endorsement - Bachelor of Science in Education Degree

The minor in Mathematics is available for students pursuing majors in other disciplines. The Elementary Education Major has a specially defined minor in Mathematics.
