  3. 3.To build up the students’ oral and written mathematical communication skills which enable them to present their ideas efficiently;
  4. 4.To equip students with academic and analytical skills needed to pursue higher education in mathematics or other related disciplines;
  5. 5.To promote collaborative work among students to help them function effectively in a professional workplace or in a graduate program.

Program Learning Outcomes

Students who successfully complete the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics will be able:

  1. 1.To demonstrate proficiency in basic knowledge in a broad range of mathematical areas;
  2. 2.To apply acquired mathematical concepts and techniques to analyze and solve problems;
  3. 3.To read, understand and write mathematical proofs;
  4. 4.To function as team players;
  5. 5.Identify the inter-dependency of different areas of mathematics, as well as connections between mathematics and other disciplines;
  6. 6.Explain and communicate mathematical principles and ideas with clarity and logic, both written and verbally, demonstrating communication skills to be used in any future career.
  7. 7.Use mathematical tools to solve larger real world problems.

Admission Requirements

For admission requirements to the degree of B.S. in Mathematics, refer to the section entitled “Undergraduate Admission” of this catalog.

Graduation Requirements

To receive the degree of BS in Mathematics, a student must fulfill all requirements of his/ her degree program, complete all required courses, and accumulate a total of 90 credits with an overall grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0/4.0 and a minimum GPA of 2.0/4.0 in both the core and major requirements, and clear all accounts with the university. Candidates for degrees are reminded that grades of “I” assigned during the last semester to courses required for graduation will result in delaying of graduation.
